National Coordinators are the bridge between the EU and national level for the implementation of the EYS and a key to involving everyone in the skills revolution. To do so, National Coordinators inform and connect actors in their countries, exchange valuable experience, and share national activities and priorities. This important role is safe in the hands of the appointed National Coordinators, who bring together the perspectives of Member States, EFTA, candidate, and potential candidate countries.
Skills in spotlight in Europe
As stressed by Ms Manuela Geleng, Director of DG EMPL’s Directorate B - Jobs and Skills, and confirmed throughout the meeting, skills are not only important, but essential. There is no better time, but right now, to generate momentum and place skills in the spotlight, and to ensure a long-lasting legacy after the Year!
The meeting showed that skills are in the spotlight in countries! The National Coordinators shared exciting and ambitious plans and actions: focusing on implementing EU initiatives (e.g., ILA, Micro-credentials), on fostering training and adult learning in line with needs of the labour market, but also setting up new projects to give visibility to skills and to promote a mindset of up and reskilling.
What is next?
The National Coordinators will meet regularly throughout the EYS to exchange national plans and ways to connect all actors, joining efforts to make the EYS a real success!
