Increasing the digital literacy of the unemployed through EU projects

During last week Callidus team participated in Thessaloniki (Greece) on the second project meeting of the "Skill IT " that takes place through the Erasmus + program. Together with the other six foreign partners from Ireland, Turkey, Spain, the Czech Republic, Greece and Italy we presented the results of the analysis of the digital literacy of the unemployed . The goal of "IT Skills' project is addressing this challenge in order to facilitate the unemployed find a job. Callidus team conducted an analysis based on interviews with a total of 30 people, and the test results show that the unemployed in Croatia mostly insufficient or below average digitally literate.

 

To solve the problem of lack of digital literacy of the unemployed and increase their competitiveness in the labor market, proposed the development of appropriate educational models for the target group. In order to ensure optimum implementation of the project, creating a table of competences, will be preceded by research methodology accessible to use appropriate educational models. Ultimately, the target group will enable the acquisition of the necessary knowledge, skills and learning outcomes 

Maintaining the next partnership meeting was agreed in June. During the next meeting in Trani (Italy) there will be a five day training for staff Callidus as well as other partners in the project, which will continue to conduct training in their home countries and thus help the successful implementation of the project.
