European e-Competence Framework Pledge in Support of the Grand Coalition
EeSA recently announced its support to the European e-Competence Framework (e-CF) Pledge to promote the e-CF as a common language for ICT competences.
European e-Competence Framework Pledge
The companies, associations and bodies undersigned, in responding to the call of Vice President Kroes to show commitment and leadership, wish to underline their commitment in creating a pan-European framework for ICT Professionalism and working together to reduce unemployment and skills mismatches.
The signatories recognise the importance of the European e-Competence Framework (e-CF) and the need for establishing the e-CF as a standard.
Therefore, they support all the efforts made at national level to promote the adoption and take-up of the e-CF and commit to encourage, when and if possible, the creation of national roundtables to foster the adoption of the e-CF.
At the same, the signatories promote broader participation in the work of the CEN Workshop on ICT Skills and support the efforts to transform the e-CF into an official European standard.
In the meantime, they also support the work to set-up a pan-European platform which would enable the entire ecosystem to plan, adopt, adapt and prepare in context of certainty and equal footing.
