According to the European Parliament (2006/962 / EC), all the students who complete compulsory education should have developed:
- Communication in the mother tongue and in foreign languages
- Mathematical thinking for problem solving in everyday situations
- Observation and explanation of the natural world
- Digital search / processing / communication technology information
- Planning and monitoring learning, both individually and in groups (metacognition)
- Interpersonal and intercultural participation in social life and conflict resolution
- Initiative taking and turning ideas into entrepreneurship through creativity, innovation and risk management
- Creative expression of ideas, experiences and emotions in a range of media and the visual arts.
The key competences are all considered equally important, because each of them can contribute to a successful life in a knowledge society.
