Goals and results

The aim is to restructure the system of continuous learning to meet the needs of the future. The vision for reforming continuous learning is that everyone has the knowledge, skills and competence required for a meaningful life, that everyone develops their skills and competence during their working lives and that competence renews the world of work and the world of work renews competence.
The objectives for reforming continuous learning were set based on this vision. Key objectives include raising the level of competence of the population, improving the employment rate, greater equity in participation and better availability of skilled labour.
Indicators measuring the implementation of the measures of the parliamentary reform and the achievement of the objectives will be monitored regularly.

Summary

The parliamentary reform of continuous learning will respond to people’s lifelong need for upskilling and reskilling. The reform promotes learning in working life, creates a service system for continuous learning and increases equity of participation

Starting points

To promote employment, we need a strong commitment to education and skills. The changing demands of work will increase the need for upskilling and continuous learning. A particular challenge is that those most in need of education are the least likely to access it.
