2023 the European Year of Skills
European Commission declared 2023 the European Year of Skills. European institutions will encourage a much stronger focus on opportunities and initiatives related to upskilling, life long learning and digital skills for all to boost Europe’s competitiveness. These efforts will aim to contribute towards achieving the Digital Decade targets – 80% of Europeans with basic digital skills and 20 million information and communications technology (ICT) specialists by 2030.
One of the biggest events focusing on skills will take place for the first time in Poland is EuroSkills – the biggest vocational education and skills excellence event in Europe. Held every two years and organised by WorldSkills Europe together with 32 Member Countries, EuroSkills brings together hundreds of young professionals from countries across Europe to compete for the chance to become the Best in Europe in their chosen skill.
