[en] Overall, reforms and changes in almost all sectors of education were launched over the past six months. In early childhood education, the introduction of the mini crèches made a contribution to a comprehensive implementation of early childhood education and care across Luxembourg, assuring at the same a first contact for the youngest with the multilingual education programme. In primary education, the focus was on quality assurance and on the introduction of assistance measures adapted to learning difficulties and the implementation of inclusive schools. In addition, the production of ICT materials for primary school classes was expanded in 2019. Changes in secondary education took place in the sectors of smart technologies trainings and continued the smooth transition from lower to upper secondary education. Furthermore, changes were made in adapting the end of study exams in secondary education according to international standards. Changes in higher education were based on the four-year-plan 2018-2021 of the University of Luxembourg, focusing on quality assurance, advancing learning and teaching, working on the achievement of international excellence in research, and fostering entrepreneurship. Some actions have been taken, however, others are still on its way and need to be implemented. The challenges to be addressed are the maintenance of multilingualism as an asset of education and training systems at all levels, the ability of the Luxembourgish education system to integrate children and youth from different backgrounds, and the ability to overcome inequalities in learning outcomes. The reforms undertaken form the foundation for addressing the challenges in the short and medium term.
