EPALE - Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe


Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition

Language: EN

In the context of the coronavirus pandemic, the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition called for pledges to address the surging need for digital skills and solutions.

The Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition brings together Member States, companies, social partners, non-profit organisations and education providers, who take action to tackle the lack of digital skills in Europe.

All organisations who take action to boost digital skills in Europe can become members of the Coalition and pledge to take actions to tackle the digital skills gap. Actions can range from training unemployed people, giving MOOCs for teachers, offering coding classes for children or cutting edge training for ICT specialists.

The Digital Opportunity traineeships scheme is a pilot project giving students and recent graduates an opportunity to get hands-on training in digital fields such as cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, coding or digital marketing.

Any organisation can make a pledge, we receive pledges of all types and scales from small local associations working with specific groups of beneficiaries to large multinationals providing online training modules and certification. Check out some examples of previous pledging organisations in ‘Pledges’ via

    I am member of the french digital coalition, as member of the "educnum" group of the french CNIL. I am also expert in the DigComp framework and teacher in "digital culture".
    I think coding is a necessary skill not only for children ! It is more important for people who has not grow with computer, and take decision without understand what happen in a computer :-)
    As for "learning piano after 60 year", we must propose "learning code lifelong".
    What are you thinking of that ?
    Best regards,
