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.
