Full title: Soft sKills dIgitaL Learning for the ICT Workforce
Sub-Programme: Key Action 2: Strategic Partnerships
What is SKILL?
In the context of rapid socio-economic change, exponential advances in technology, and the burgeoning ICT sector of the emerging fourth industrial revolution, business leaders identify a growing need for managers and employees who possess soft skill capacities, such as critical thinking, people management, etc. Yet, most ICT small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and micro-firms cannot afford soft skills training programs especially in these difficult times.
The Proposed Solution
The project aims to address the soft skills gap and increase the competitiveness of ICT SMEs and micro-firms.
This project offers an ICT sector soft skills framework and an innovative, engaging ICT soft skills curriculum with teaching and learning resources that are all freely-available via a device-agnostic e-learning platform.
How can you participate?
If you work in the ICT industry, there are several ways that you can contribute to this project such as through focus groups, questionnaires, etc. A pilot project will be launched towards the end of the project.
Attend the multiplier event
As part of the EU project, SKILL (Soft sKills dIgitaL Learning for the ICT Workforce), we’re hosting a multiplier event where we will be discussing the art of effective communication in the IT industry.
