Objectives & Phases

The project aims to improve training opportunities for adults without digital skills, the unemployed and young people outside

education or employment, by providing innovative and flexible training in basic digital competences. The objective of the project is related to initiatives for the development of flexible and targeted VET programs, which contribute to overcoming the existing gaps in access to education for adults of working age to successfully find employment.

The partner organizations will join forces to develop inclusive training in basic digital competencies, integrating digital and flexible learning methods that will be integrated into the work of both organizations and used effectively in the future. All products will be freely shared with partner and training organizations so that they can be used to support people with few opportunities and risk groups.

The project includes consistent and interrelated phases:

  1. Conducting a study to identify specific training needs in basic digital skills and develop a conceptual framework
  2. Development of curricula and training materials on basic digital competencies
  3. Conducting a workshop for testing the trainings
  4. Dissemination of project results
