CoverCitizenship Education at School in Europe – 2017
OPOCE, 2017. Eurydice Report

There has been a strong focus in recent years on the promotion of citizenship education, as a result of the increasing threats to fundamental values such as peace, equality and human rights Europe is faced with, and several countries are making changes to their policies in this area. But what is citizenship education? How is it taught? How are students evaluated? Can citizenship skills be developed outside the classroom? What training and support do teachers receive?

The report is divided into four chapters, each of which is complemented by a case study on recent policy initiatives:

  • Curriculum Organisation and Content
  • Teaching, Learning and Active Participation
  • Student Assessment and School Evaluation
  • Teacher Education, Professional Development and Support

The report is primarily based on qualitative data, and covers 42 education systems. It focuses on the existing regulations and recommendations regarding citizenship education in public sector schools and includes general education and school-based initial vocational education training programmes.

Key data on teaching languages at school in Europe — 2017 edition

In an age where learning several languages is a necessity for many people and offers endless opportunities to all, there have been a number of reforms in recent years with regards to foreign language learning. This new Eurydice Brief on Key Data on Teaching Languages at School in Europe 2017  builds on a comprehensive report on teaching languages at school in Europe and includes information on research works and EU policy documents. It presents a state of play of the existing policies on key aspects of foreign language teaching and concludes with further routes which could be explored to encourage language teaching at primary and secondary level in the future. 
This Brief is structured around five key EU and national language policy themes: the importance of learning two foreign languages from a very early age; the range of foreign languages learnt by students; the foreign language teaching itself with a particular focus on teachers and their visits abroad for professional purposes, and CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) as a teaching approach; the expected levels of attainment in foreign languages; language support measures to facilitate the integration of newly arrived migrant students. You can also have a look at our brand new infographics here.

El 1 de agosto estará todo preparado para que el nuevo programa de la UE de distribución de frutas, hortalizas y leche en los centros escolares empiece a aplicarse en toda la Unión a partir del primer día del curso escolar 2017-2018.

Destinado a fomentar hábitos alimentarios saludables entre los niños, el programa consistirá en la distribución de fruta, hortalizas y productos lácteos, así como en programas educativos específicos para concienciar a los escolares de la importancia de una buena nutrición y explicarles cómo se producen los alimentos.

Este programa único fusiona y mejora los proyectos existentes, de los que el año pasado se beneficiaron más de veinte millones de niños. Aunque la participación sea facultativa, los 28 Estados miembros han confirmado que tomarán parte en esta iniciativa durante el curso escolar 2017-2018. (RAPID, IP/17/2183, 31.7.2017)

CoverRecommended Annual Instruction Time in Full-time Compulsory Education in Europe – 2016/17

The Council of the European Union has set the goal of reducing low achievement in reading, mathematics and science among 15-year-olds to less than 15 % by 2020. But how are European countries going to achieve this? Effective learning depends on many factors, but one key element in the learning process of students is the instruction time available to them. How can they best organize limited time between different subjects, ensuring that all students have the opportunity to develop their learning potential in a range of different areas?

This report examines the recommended minimum instruction time in full-time compulsory general education in 2016/17 in 42 European education systems. It includes national diagrams illustrating the data by country and by subject. The comparative overview examines the policy changes that have taken place over the last year regarding the recommended annual instruction time and its distribution across subjects. It pays special attention to several subjects which are currently of particular interest at European level: Reading, writing and literature, maths, natural sciences, other languages and physical education and health. For maths and natural sciences it compares the minimum recommended by education authorities with the instruction time reported by teachers and students in TIMSS and PISA surveys.

The Eurydice network has been collecting data on instruction time for more than two decades and annually updated data on instruction time has been available on the Eurydice website since 2010.  [+]
