An economy that works for people
One of the European Commission's 2019-2024 priorities
Promoting inclusion through hands-on play and blended e-learning
An important strand of the European Commission’s priority of fostering an economy that works for people is to continue to improve the quality, as well as the number of jobs in the EU. In an effort to reconcile the social and market aspects of today’s economy, the Commission is determined to make sure that gender, age, ethnicity and religious affiliation are not obstacles to fair employment.
The Erasmus + programme plays an important role in implementing this priority, with its accent on youth, education, training and sport.
Several projects use vocational education and training (VET) as a tool to help young people enter the jobs market. Meanwhile, digital platforms and open-access online courses offer the potential to reach all sectors of the European public.
Gender Education Advancing Competences in Context of Changing Europe
A programme of blended learning modules combines online and face-to-face teaching to raise awareness of gender issues, especially in the workplace. The project’s open-access, online courses are available in several European languages, and can be accessed even after the funding has ended.
