The European Commission has 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 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.
