EUCIS-LLL position on the EU2020 flagship initiative “Agenda for New Skills and Jobs”
EUCIS-LLL supports the overall orientation of the Agenda for New Skills and Jobs and welcomes its focus on implementation and “resolute action”. The Agenda is very ambitious with 13 action points and 4 key priorities covering many aspects of education, training, employment, youth or social affairs. However in these times of crisis and change, the austerity measures put in place by EU Member States are having an adverse effect by acting on investments in education and training.
