SKILL IT - Designing inclusiveness strategies for enhancing basic digital skills for low and non-educated people

Language: EN


The Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth acknowledges lifelong learning and skills development as key elements to the economic recovery, demographic ageing and to the broader economic and social strategy of the EU. The 2015 Review of the strategy has been mixed with targets on employment or poverty reduction not close to being met. The 2014 Education and Training Monitor highlights serious challenges that remain: 20% of adults have low levels of literacy and numeracy and 25% have low levels of digital skills yet only 10% take part in lifelong learning meaning 1 in 4 adults in Europe is caught in a low skills trap (OCED’s survey of Adult Skills) limiting their access to the labour market while simultaneously closing access to further education and or training. Low levels of basic competencies hamper economic progress and severely limit individuals in their professional, social and personal fulfilment.

Skill IT is a transnational European adult education innovative strategic partnership which aims to develop, design and implement inclusiveness strategies for enhancing basic skills, particularly digital skills for specific adult groups-adults with low level or no qualifications, those in low skilled occupations, unemployed, migrants and economically inactive, older people.

Skill IT will:

  • Address the issues of low levels of digital literacy and competency amongst adults who are disadvantaged and at risk of exclusion
  • Address stagnating participation in adult learning in EU countries through inclusive strategies
  • Strengthen the partnership between local and regional organisations in partner countries working with the target groups of adult learners;
  • Increase digital competence and literacy amongst the hardest to reach groups in 7 partner countries using an innovative transnational approach involving local and regional adult education organisations, teachers, trainers and  the adult learners themselves;
  • Improve and extend access to learning opportunities in accordance with Europe 2020, ET 2020 and Erasmus+ goals.  Skill IT's transnationality allows adult learners from different target groups and staff from partner countries to cooperate innovatively in order to design and develop an innovative ICT Education Model which will be tested within the 7 partner countries:
  • Ballebeen Women’s Centre (Northern Ireland)
    • Kaş Halk Eğitimi Merkezi (Turkey)
  • AKLUB (Czech Republic)
  • Morfogennesis (Greece)
  • Tradigenia (Spain)
  • Callidus (Croatia)
