The main objective of the call is to support the successful implementation of the Council
Recommendation on Upskilling Pathways, thereby facilitating the access of low skilled and /
or low qualified adults to flexible pathways for enhancing their literacy, numeracy and digital
skills and/or progressing towards a higher qualification and re-engaging them in learning – as
part of a New Boost for Jobs, Growth and Investment, one of the ten priorities of President
Juncker’s Political Guidelines and as part of the New Skills Agenda for Europe, launched by
the Commission on 10 June 2016

Priorities and funded actions:

To help a given Member State to prepare the ground for the implementation of the Council
Recommendation on “Upskilling Pathways” by:
–  taking stock of any existing provision upon which full Upskilling Pathways can be built, and identifying gaps to be addressed and ways to do so, in cooperation with relevant stakeholders;
– supporting national authorities in the targeting of Upskilling Pathways at priority groups;
– supporting relevant stakeholders both to disseminate information about, and stimulate the use of, the upskilling opportunities available, and to secure their involvement in concrete implementation activities in line with the general principles defined in the Recommendation

Among financed actions
– Identification of the specific measures needed to support the defined priority groups and the financial means to put those into place;
– Outreach, information sharing and communication activities
