“If we are to come to terms with the digital skills gap in Europe, education, youth work and training need to become a joint responsibility between employers, employees, educators and policy makers. We need to test ideas, develop projects, work and think together on the best ways to give people the skills they need for new jobs.” Andrus Ansip, Vice-President for the Digital Single Market.
It is a great opportunity for Emphasys Centre to participate in the Erasmus+ Youth project titled: ‘Digital@YouthWork’ which aims to upgrade Digital Youth Work and to equip Young People with advanced digital skills to meet the needs of the labour market. The 2nd partner meeting which was organized in Lancaster – UK between the 14th and 15th of October 2019 focused on the analysis of the digital requirements of the 10 most popular and needed job profiles in each partner country in order to better prepare young people for the demands to be faced. The innovative training courses to be developed will surely upgrade the quality of youth work offered while enhancing the professional development of Youth Workers.
