    • Dear members, As some of you may know already, on the 14th June the European Commission held the Key Competences Conference, with the participation of more than 100 stakeholders in the field of education and training, including civil society organizations and representatives of the Members States. That event signed the official end of the consultation phase by the Commission. Many valuable inputs have been submitted during the past months through different procedures, including meetings, conferences and an online public consultation. The discussions in this Collaborative Space have been part of this consultation phase and we want to thank each one of you for your participation, engagement and relevant feedbacks. The Commission is currently analysing all the received inputs in order to integrate them in a proposed revision of the Key Competences framework. Therefore, we would like to advise you that no more messages will be published in this Collaborative Space, which will soon be closed. Thank you once more for the discussions and your engagement in the review of the Key Competences framework. Kindest regards, Matteo Tarasco Policy Assistant

    • Take part! Public consultation on the review of key competences for lifelong learning The European Commission has just launched a public consultation which will run until 19 May 2017 with a view to updating the 2006 Recommendation on Key Competences for Lifelong Learning. This review will seek to determine which competences (knowledge, skills and attitudes) young people need to succeed in life. The review was announced in the Commission's New Skills Agenda for Europe adopted in June 2016. The goal is to develop a shared understanding of key competences needed (for example literacy, citizenship, entrepreneurship and digital) and to further foster opportunities for learner development in education and training. The revision will also explore possibilities for supporting the assessment of these skills and for teacher professional development. The Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, Tibor Navracsics said: "Today, young people need a broader set of competences to find fulfilling jobs and become independent, engaged citizens who contribute to society. Education and training have a crucial role in enabling young people to develop these competences, giving them the best possible start in life. Participating in this public consultation gives educational authorities, policy makers, practitioners and citizens the chance to define what key competences are necessary for personal fulfilment and development, active citizenship, social inclusion and employment." The Recommendation on Key Competences contributes to the development of quality education and training tailored to the needs of European societies and is being reviewed to reflect political, social and technological developments since 2006.
