Mapping of Digital Skills and Competences
Project AXESS intends to provide concrete answers to specific needs of adults (low-skilled adult women) in the area of digital skills. Why digital skills? This choice is due to their high relevance in modern social and economic environment.
The second task - Mapping of Digital Skills & Competences for low skilled adults - is taking place in the first half of 2018. It will outline real and perceived learning needs, through a series of qualitative and quantitative data and information. "Low-skilled" is understood throughout this project as persons with minimum ISCED 3 level education who lack certain skills.
The project partners agreed on methodology for collecting data on target group needs, prepared questionnaires, defined sources for desk research (statistical data, EU documents such as Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition, E-skills for the 21st century: fostering competitiveness, growth and jobs, European e-Competence Framework, Filling the Gaps: e-Skills and Education for Digital Jobs, e-Skills: Curriculum Development Guidelines, Europa 2020 and ET 2020, New Skills Agenda and related national documents).
The results of mapping of digital skills & competences will be presented in a form of "country snapshots" for each partner country. At the second project meeting in May 3-4, 2018 in Pescara/IT the partners will discuss the findings and make recommendations for training courses responding to the most pressing needs. The experts from AINova, coordinating partner from SK shall then summarize the key findings and recommendations from all partners by the end of June 2018.
