18 Aug ALL DIGITAL Opinion on proposed CR on provision of digital skills
18 Aug, 2023
On 18 April the College of Commissioners adopted the proposal for a Council Recommendation on improving the provision of digital skills in education and training. The proposal constitutes Action 10 of the Digital Education Action Plan (2021-2027) (DEAP). ALL DIGITAL approves of the proposal and urges the Spanish Council Presidency, which has taken office 1 July, to further its swift adoption. The proposal relates closely to and complements the proposal for a Council Recommendation on key enabling factors for successful digital education and training under Action 1 of the DEAP (Find ALL DIGITAL’s position on this proposal here). The proposal on improving the provision of digital skills addresses the development of digital competences within education and training settings, which complements the other proposal’s topic of using digital methodologies, tools and content in education and training.
ALL DIGITAL approves of the proposed Council Recommendation on improving the provision of digital skills in education and training and urges Member States to reach a swift agreement on their adoption, as well as a strong commitment towards their subsequent implementation. We stand ready to continue to support the European Commission and Member States in their initiatives towards the inclusive and accessible development of digital skills for all.
