The world of work is changing profoundly. There are a lot of reports and researches showing that digital skills are closely connected with employability, especially when speaking of young people entering the labor market. Also taking into consideration the COVID-19 pandemic, it is now more than ever essential to have (labor market related) digital skills, being prepared to face all kinds of challenges, such as pandemics.
Thus, the aim of DigiGo is to support the acquisition of digital skills by VET students, during their apprenticeships and at the same time to decrease the skills mismatch of VET students when starting apprenticeships.
Promote the digitalisation of VET apprenticeships, but also to face skills mismatch between the needed digital competences in the labor market for VET students
To reach the project’s objectives, DigiGo is focused not only in the skills that apprentices lack, but also in those that company trainers need to acquire. The project is innovative as it combines the promotion of apprenticeships and work based learning, with the need to support the development of digital skills, directly connected to employability.
