21st Century Education
Luxembourg considers education as a major cornerstone for the well-being of its knowledge-based society.
Digitalisation will dramatically increase the speed of creation of new job profiles, while existing job profiles might disappear. The fast pace of technological developments therefore implies the need to better monitor the skills gap existing between supply and demand, and to train the population in new, highly dynamic digital skills.
Consequently, in Luxembourg digital tools and technologies have become the content of new training programmes while also being used as a means of delivery for these new contents. In terms of key competencies, transversal skills form a skillset that is needed in order to cope with these fast-paced developments and changes.
Another focus is on lifelong learning. This concept has changed from a model that implied updating existing skills, to a model in which completely new skillsets have to be acquired in short periods of time in order to cope with the more fundamental changes in career paths that we will see in the future.
These new educational challenges come in addition to the already existing ones of providing high-quality, inequality-avoiding initial training to a very heterogeneous and multilingual school population. Moreover, Luxembourg has the ambition to be amongst the frontrunners in the field of adult education in order to upskill and reskill the workforce.
