pursuant to Rule 133 of the Rules of Procedure

on the European Qualifications Framework and the transfer of knowledge

Dominique Martin

Motion for a European Parliament resolution on the European Qualifications Framework and the transfer of knowledge  

The European Parliament,

–  having regard to Rule 133 of its Rules of Procedure,

A.  whereas the Commission is attempting to strengthen the single market by stimulating the development of a mobile workforce with skill sets that evolve in response to the requirements of business;

B.  whereas the development of a kind of mobile and inexpensive sub-proletariat has become essential to achieving these aims and explains the Commission’s bias in favour of migration flows;

C.  whereas the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) is supposed to enable workers to gain recognition Europe-wide for the formal and informal learning pathways that they have followed;

D.  whereas the EQF is supposed to help migrants and the long-term unemployed find work anywhere in Europe, but the Member States are struggling to launch such a complex initiative;

1.  Calls on the Commission to support the transfer of knowledge, particularly in the handicraft and traditional trade sectors, as a practical way to overcome the crisis, rather than persisting in its attempts to bring skills in line with the requirements of businesses all the time.
