With Erasmus +, the european Union wants to improve the jobs of tomorrow

“The Europeans are more likely than ever to live and work abroad, within the european Union “, highlights the final report of the Commission on the mobility of workers. In 2018, the EU had $ 17.6 million of citizens who have made this choice – including $ 12.9 million of working age (20-64 years), an increase of 3.4 % compared to 2017.

In total, 4.2% of the population of the Eu is to work in a host State. And this number can still increase : mid-may 2020, Eures, the european network that connects job seekers and employers, accounted for nearly 2.8 million offers of vacancies in the whole of Europe.

To match supply and demand of employment

This figure shows that the unemployment is not due to economic difficulties, but also to the organisation of a system of initial training and throughout the life which is struggling to match supply and demand of employment.

In France, for example, 150 000 positions remain unfilled each year for lack of candidates with the right skills, according to Pôle emploi. At the other end of the chain, the Dares, the studies and statistics of the ministry of labour, estimated in 2018 to 963 000 the number of young people 16 to 25 years who are neither in education, nor in employment, nor in education or training, or almost 13% of this age class.

However, convergence of the skills and needs will be increasingly necessary to adapt to a technological progress that will permanently change the labor market. According to the ministry of national education, 65 % of the school children of today will be in the future, jobs that do not yet exist.

Promote a european area of training

This challenge, the european Union has taken to arm-the-body. Because if the organization of systems of education and training remains the prerogative of States, the EU competences are non-trivial to coordinate, support and supplement the actions of member countries. Thus, as early as 2010, the Commission proposed a framework of co-operation – “Education and training 2020” – setting some great targets to ten years, since the generalization of pre-school education to expanded access of young people to study or work placements abroad.

Similarly, the agenda for skills, presented in 2016, proposes a series of actions to improve the encounter of the demand and supply of employment. In particular, the establishment of a “warranty of skill “ to ensure that the public little qualified to a minimum level. Or the development of a common scale of qualifications, to facilitate comparisons between the member countries.

The Erasmus + is part of a strategy to increase the power of skills. First mobility : by 2018, more than 850, 000 students, apprentices, teachers and socio-educational instructors have received a grant for a stay abroad. Then, by promoting a european area for training innovative, capable of developing the know-how necessary for the jobs of tomorrow.

Accompany the areas in mutation

Among all those supported by the agence Erasmus + France, the project At Home is iconic. It concerns, in power, and the 8 million people working in Europe, in the sector of home help. “For this audience, of which 80 % are without any initial training, we have developed new tools to consolidate and validate the skills (according to the repository AEFA, european Agenda for the education and training of adults, editor’s NOTE) and, thus, develop a vital profession, but a victim of social exclusion “, highlights Sophie Alex-Bacquer, head of mission at the training institute of the Red Cross of New-Aquitaine.

Launched in 2017, with partners, belgian, Portuguese and Spanish universities, companies, services, At Home has led to the realization of a Mooc, so of course digital, which lists the major cross-cutting skills required, adapted to real-life situations, and offers tutorials to develop them. “This tool, developed in four languages, is free to access from November 2019, and the first experiences are very positive “, accurate Sophie Alex-Bacquer.

Prepare for the future, it is also accompany the sectors changing as the textile, clothing, leather and footwear, which accounted for 2 million jobs in the Union, for a turnover of € 200 billion.

A budget increase for Erasmus +

“Outsourcing, digitization and robotization are that skills needs are changing. The challenge is to train a maximum of operators, whose number will decrease, so be ready to occupy a portion of the 600,000 posts of technicians and engineers that are to be filled by 2025 “says Laurence Allois, and training manager job at Unitex, the federation of textile industries of Rhône-Alpes, and head of the project Skills4Smart for France.

Alliance of 22 partners from nine european countries, Skills4Smart was launched in early 2018 to facilitate this transformation by re-designing completely the supply of training. “We have defined the profiles of priority jobs and built a training content currently being tested via an online platform in ten countries. Ultimately, the goal is that they will be recognised throughout the EU, because the interest of the project is to build a european training and employment “, highlights Laurence Allois.

It acknowledges that such a project, if complex, involving a diversity of actors, probably would not have seen the light of day without the support of Europe and the support of Erasmus +.

This flagship program of the european Union, which has changed the lives of millions of young Europeans, should also see its envelope doubled to 28 billion euros in the framework of the budget 2021-2027. Sign that the Union is committed to investing in the skills and mobility, “stepping stones towards societies and economies more resilient and more inclusive “, according to the formula of Margaritis Schinas, commissioner responsible for the promotion of the european way of life.

“All parts of the country are in good shape, getting better in every way,” he said.

Spain, Italy, France…: balance sheets are improving and measures are continuing

LThe pandemic of the new coronavirus has killed at least 112,510 people worldwide since its appearance in December in China, according to an assessment established by the AFP from official sources on Sunday at 7:00 p.m. GMT.

More than 1,824,950 cases of infection have been officially diagnosed in 193 countries and territories since the start of the epidemic. This number of diagnosed cases, however, only reflects a fraction of the actual number of infections, with a large number of countries testing only those cases requiring hospital care. Among these cases, at least 375,500 are today considered cured.


Italy announced on Sunday 431 deaths from Covid-19 disease in the past 24 hours, its weakest record since March 19 more than three weeks ago.

Never since that date (427) has this figure fallen below the 500 dead mark. This total of deaths recorded by civil protection is almost a third less heavy than that announced on Saturday (619).

Italy is one of the countries worst affected by the pandemic in the world, with nearly 20,000 dead according to official figures.

“The pressure on our hospital structures continues to drop,” said the head of civil protection, Angelo Borrelli.

For the ninth consecutive day, the number of intensive care patients fell, with 3,343 beds occupied by these seriously ill patients, the lowest level since March 23.

“We have succeeded with the measures adopted to reduce the pressure on what is a key element of our health system,” said Luca Richeldi, pulmonologist at the Gemelli hospital in Rome.

This control of contagion is particularly noticeable in Lombardy, the region of Milan in the north, the most bereaved with more than half of the deaths on the peninsula. Health officials have counted 111 deaths there in the past 24 hours: never in nearly a month (March 14), this number has been as low.

The death toll is “much lower than yesterday and after so many days there is a downward trend,” said Giulio Gallera, regional health official.


Spain, where the 24-hour death toll from the covid-19 rebounded on Sunday, remains “far from victory,” insisted Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, urging the Spanish to avoid laxity.

The third most bereaved country in the world by the pandemic behind the United States and Italy, Spain reported Sunday 619 deaths in 24 hours according to the authorities, a figure rising after three consecutive days of decline. As of Saturday, that number rose to 510, the lowest since March 23.

A total of 16,972 people have died from the disease in the country since the start of the epidemic, including more than 6,000 in the Madrid region. The number of new confirmed cases in 24 hours (about 4,100), however, declined Sunday compared to Saturday, bringing the total to 166,019 while the number of people healed stood at 62,391.

If the peak of the epidemic has been passed, according to the authorities, “we are far from victory, as long as we find this normalcy in our lives,” said Pedro Sanchez in a television address. “We all want to go back to the streets (…) but there is an even greater desire to win the war and avoid a relapse,” he added.

These statements come on the eve of the resumption of work for many Spaniards after two weeks of “economic hibernation” intended to curb the spread of the virus. As of March 30, all non-core economic activity had been halted, a measure affecting construction and industry in particular.

The country has been under general confinement since March 14, which was extended to April 25 inclusive. But Mr. Sanchez has already indicated this week that he should still be.


Shy lull on the coronavirus front: but the French must remain confined after a weekend of Easter under cover and before an intervention Monday evening by Emmanuel Macron where he should announce an extension of the confinement.

“Since Saturday, we observe 220 entries in intensive care and 255 exits, indicated the General direction of health by press release, in the absence of press point of Pr Jérôme Salomon. The balance (…) is negative for the fourth consecutive day, but for only 35 patients, it is therefore a very slight decrease. ”

And the Covid-19 continues to kill. In total, 14,393 people died in France, or 561 more in 24 hours, according to the last official report on Sunday.

“The epidemic continues in our country in a dynamic way and continues to hit hard, insists the DGS. We are seeing the start of a very high plateau but we must remain vigilant because hospital and intensive care services take care of a very large number of patients. We must not relax our efforts and continue to reduce the number of contacts every day to curb the transmission of the virus together ”.

The terms of confinement were also tightened in several regions and 160,000 police and gendarmes were mobilized this weekend to prevent the unruly from moving.

The pressure on hospitals remains strong and the mobilization of “several thousand volunteers” will still be necessary in the coming months, said the director general of Paris hospitals, Martin Hirsch, in Le Parisien.


The UK announced on Saturday 917 more deaths from the new coronavirus, bringing the total toll to nearly 10,000 on its soil, and the government stresses the importance of respecting containment over the Easter weekend.

The parks of London and certain beaches in the South have been visited by many walkers and joggers, sometimes pushing the police to intervene to send home too crowded groups, or those who tanned in the sun, which gives rise to fear of an even more pronounced relaxation .

With more than 900 deaths recorded two days in a row in hospitals, not counting retirement homes, the United Kingdom is the country in Europe where the Covid-19 is the deadliest today while Italy or Spain record recession.

The pandemic took a dramatic turn this week with the admission of Prime Minister Boris Johnson in intensive care on Monday, from where he left on Thursday evening.

According to British press, 55-year-old executive recovers from hospital doing sudokus and watching movies such as Lord of the Rings or romantic comedy Love Actually, and has received copies of ultrasound scans from his 32-year-old fiancée , Carrie Symonds, pregnant.

“The Prime Minister continues to make good progress,” said Interior Minister Priti Patel at the government’s daily press conference on Saturday, calling, however, not to forget “the seriousness of the national emergency”. revealed by “the raw numbers”.

The government must decide in the coming days on a possible extension of the containment, decreed on March 23 for three weeks initially. This hypothesis seems very likely because the authorities affirmed that they would wait until the peak is crossed to relax the measures in place, Mr. Powis warning Saturday that it was a “marathon” and not a “sprint “

On average, 84 fines for failing to comply with these measures were raised daily in England and Wales, police said.

Statistics from health authorities remain “alarming” for microbiology professor Simone Clarke. He points out that the United Kingdom should pass the 10,000 death mark on Sunday, whereas it passed that of “1,000 deaths just two weeks ago”.

And “it is now clear that young people or those with a medical history are much more exposed than we thought,” added the researcher, while the health service announced Saturday the death of a child of 11 years.
