POLICY ACTIONS AT NATIONAL LEVEL

As highlighted in consultations forthe New Skills Agenda, the education sector faces the challenge to upskill the future workforce. Many educators, parents, economists and politicians worldwide consider coding as a key skill for a thriving and ever-innovative digital society and economy.

Coding skills help to understand today's digitalised society and foster 21st century skills like problem solving, creativity and logical thinking. Efforts towards integration of coding in formal education are already being delivered.

Analysis and examples of these efforts are available in the report Computing our Future. Priorities, school curricula and initiatives across Europe.
