The role of skills in educational and training systems


  • Giorgio Riello


It has been several years since the certification of skills became one of the policies of the European Community. Individual Member States have taken the concept of skill as a criterion of innovation because it is considered capable of dealing with both the theoretical and operational aspects and to connect such policies on education, training and employment. This paper aims to address the role of skills in institutional changes with regard to the terms of a new social model and for what concerns the higher education systems.
