On 28th of May an education hearing entitled Rethinking Education for the Erasmus Generation: Combining Knowledge and Soft Skills, was initiated by MEPs Marek Migalski (ECR), Silvia Costa (S&D) and Marco Scurria (EPP) at the European Parliament.

The main aim of the hearing was to discuss new learning possibilities that mobility gives young people, as well as skills required by their future employers. During the hearing speakers were talking about the shape of education in the EU countries and what kind of changes should be made in order to give young people a greater possibility of being employed after graduating.

“Participating in mobility programmes helps you to develop soft skills. Studying abroad is not only about getting hard knowledge, but also about your personal growth. Never before has knowledge been transferred so easily. It is a great chance for your generation, that you should not miss”, Mr. Migalski said.

“It is in our common interest to assure that the mobility programmes will last and will be a useful tool for all those who want to take part in them. Since 1987, 2 200 000 students, as well as 250 000 teachers and academics took part in mobility programmes. Those are great numbers, which we hope to increase over the next years”, Mr. Migalski stressed.

Talking about a new programme for 2014-2020, Mr. Migalski said that “it will support not only individual mobility, but also strategic collaboration between university programmes in order to create better opportunities and better learning experiences for students. In my view this is very important, because it is a step towards the modernisation of Europe’s higher education institutions”.
