Quality education for all is at the heart of our priorities. We also plan to significantly increase funding for the Erasmus+ programme dedicated to young people in apprenticeships or vocational training, multiplying it tenfold. This aims to cultivate a sense of belonging to Europe while helping young people develop their skills, gain valuable experience, and broaden their horizons.

To this end, we will increase the budget allocated to the Erasmus+ programme tenfold for young people in apprenticeships or vocational training to help them develop their skills, experience and open-mindedness.

We are also firmly convinced that we must increase the representation of girls and women in scientific studies and careers. We will develop mentoring and awareness-raising programmes and build real professional networks.

At the same time, given the demands of the ecological transition, we believe investing in lifelong learning, retraining, and professional reorientation is vital. We must help all those working in sectors undergoing rapid change, such as the automotive or fossil fuel industries, to retrain. We can certainly achieve this by working closely with employers, workers’ organisations and governments.

We will do everything to ensure that diplomas and qualifications are recognised in EU countries, and we will facilitate the mobility of students and workers.

Finally, we will develop cross-border cooperation in education and training to meet labour needs in critical sectors (healthcare, tourism, industry, etc.). By doing so, we can tackle the labour market challenges and ensure we have enough skilled workers to support Europe’s future.
