In an ever-evolving world, the question of how to prepare students for future challenges becomes increasingly significant. The Be-21-Skilled project, led by ACEEU, is at the forefront of this endeavour, seeking to identify and nurture the essential skills for student success in the 21st century.

The Second Transnational Project Meeting

The project consortium convened for their second Transnational Project Meeting (TPM) in Muenster, hosted by the ACEEU. This meeting was a pivotal moment for sharing insights and research findings on what skills are deemed crucial in today’s economy.

Key Findings and Discussions

The discussions at the TPM centred around the outcomes of an EU-wide survey and regional analyses conducted through desk research. These findings are integral in understanding the skills landscape and the specific competencies that students need to thrive in the new economy. The focus is not just on academic knowledge but on a broader set of skills that include critical thinking, problem-solving, and adaptability, among others.

The Be-21-Skilled Toolkit

One of the significant outcomes of the TPM is the initiation of the Be-21-Skilled Toolkit. Under the leadership of ACEEU, the partners are collaborating to create a resource that will assist teachers and trainers in fostering these vital skills among STEM students and graduates. This toolkit represents a practical step towards translating research findings into actionable strategies in education.

As we navigate the complexities of the modern economy, the Be-21-Skilled project stands as a beacon of progress in education. By focusing on the development of 21st-century skills, ACEEU and its partners are paving the way for a generation of students who are not only academically proficient but also adept at meeting the challenges of tomorrow's world. Stay tuned for more updates and breakthroughs from this trailblazing initiative.
