New research to support Economic Opportunities for All initiative

Towards a European approach to micro-credentials
JA Europe and its network of 41 national JA organisations strongly support working towards “A European approach to micro-credentials”. Micro-credentials are increasingly relevant for the assessment and recognition of acquired competences, including the entrepreneurship competence which is recognized as one of EU’s eight key competences for lifelong learning. These transversal competences (incl. knowledge, skills, attitudes) that are in high demand and essential for future job creation can be acquired through Entrepreneurship Education. It is therefore crucial to ensure more opportunities for entrepreneurial experiences for all young Europeans, as well as the further uptake of micro-credentials assessing and certifying the skills and competences acquired through entrepreneurship education.
