Skills and training

28 February 2019

Developing skills and competences is an important dimension of quality of work and employment. Skills are the passport to employment; the better skilled an individual, the more employable they are.  Good skills also tend to secure better-quality jobs and better earnings.   Employability is a combination of factors (such as job-specific skills and soft skills) which enable individuals to progress towards or enter into employment, stay in employment and progress during their careers. Employability is reflected in the first key principle of the Pillar of Social Right: Education, training and life-long learning.  Everyone has the right to quality and inclusive education, training and life-long learning in order to maintain and acquire skills that enable them to participate fully in society and manage successfully transitions in the labour market.
