Education and training play a crucial role in enabling young people to develop these skills and competences – as well as allowing them the best possible start in life (European Commission, 2019). 21st Century Skills (Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity & Innovation, Self- Direction, Making Global Connections, Making Local Connections, Using Technology as a Tool for Learning) are crucial for quality of education and training. All educators, researchers and labour market are agreed about the importance of mentioned skills but there is a lack of teaching materials and methodology. In order to help and develop skill development at the EU level partnership intend to develop CATCH-21 Century Project.
The main objective of the project is to increase the Quality of Higher Education Institutions (HEI) at the EU level in teaching of 21st Century Skills to support better understanding of qualifications and make better use of all available skills in the European labour market.
