Digital skills for adults


DATE 12/11/2020


DIGIT-ALL is an Erasmus+ project that aims to improve and extend the supply of high quality learning opportunities tailored to the needs of low-skilled or low-qualified adults by making available flexible learning offers adapted to their learning needs (e.g. blended learning, digital learning applications), and by the validation of skills acquired through informal and non-formal learning. The DIGIT-ALL project will develop digital skills in adult learners with a low level or with no digital competences at all, and, at the same time, certify them under a European framework.

During the course of the project, the partners will develop three online courses available to train adult people with low digital skills. The objective of these series of online courses is to target the basic digital skills each adult person should have and encourage them to continue their training and, to acquire skills that are more advanced. Moreover, these courses will support the setting up of and access to upskilling pathways, giving the opportunity to enhance the literacy, numeracy and digital competences, as well as other key competences, and to progress towards higher qualifications, including through skills identification and screening or tailored learning offers.

The DIGIT-ALL is aimed for Low-skilled or low-qualified adults, but also, indirectly, to guidance practitioners & guidance organizations; users of the guidance services with low digital skills; education and guidance policy decision makers engaged in digital skills improvement in adults; regional guidance services; representatives and policy makers and external stakeholders (educators and trainers engaged in digital skills training programs with adults).

Due to covid-19 travelling restrictions, thekick-off meeting of the project took place online on 5thof November.
