DigiTrain - Cofunded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union
About DigiTrain

Background of Project

The project was developed against a background of rapid digital transformation of the economy in which most jobs now require some level of digital as well as transversal skills. Moreover, the use of digital technology in our private lives for leisure purposes, entertainment and communication with other individuals has shown a dramatic increase. In the work place, these technologies have spread so rapidly that an estimated 90% of all available jobs require at least a basic level of digital skills. Almost half the EU population lack basic digital skills with 20% having none at all.



Aims and Objectives

The aim of the project is to build capacity of training organisations to enable them to deliver high quality and relevant digital skills training by improving staff competence and formulating digital competency frameworks to be used as the basis for developing appropriate digital training programmes, learning resources and tools.



Key Objectives

1 Formulate a digital competence framework for (a) adult educators and (b) adults
2 Design and pilot a modular “Train the Trainer’ course for adult educators, and a Digital Skills course for disadvantaged adults
3 Develop teaching and learning resources to deliver blended digital skills training to adult educators and adults
4 Improve adult educators’ knowledge of digital learning technology tools, platforms, and skills in using them
