Project Overview

Aims:

In a consortium representing 8 EU countries, the web2jobs project aims to support the KA3 priority ‘reinforcing digital competence and bridging the worlds of education and work’.
We plan to do this by developing an innovative ‘Train the Trainer’ programme for Vocational Education and Training (VET) Providers and Adult Educators that will enable them to deliver more effective employability support for mature adults seeking re-entry to the labour market.

Objectives:

  • To create a flexible, dynamic learning environment for use by older trainers in order to enhance and update their skills in delivering fit-for-purpose employability support programmes
  • To foster the uptake of ICT for learning by allowing trainers and end users to discover new ways of actively and creatively developing their individual competences in the use of social media and collaborative tools
  • To address the digital divide by targeting trainers (aged 45+) who support older individuals who are unemployed
  • To afford greater access to ‘hidden’ labour market opportunities for disadvantaged groups through the effective and informed use of social media tools.
  • To update and improve the digital skills and competences of trainers in VET and Adult Education
  • To improve the digital skills, competences and future employment prospects of mature job seekers.

The Benefits:

  • Increased digital competence in using social media tools for both employability trainers and mature job-seekers
  • More trainers able to deliver employability programmes enhanced by social media and the opportunities it offers.
  • More collaborative ‘cross sector’  trainer communities that share best practice and resources
  • More adults  aged 50+  using innovative routes to labour market opportunities
  • Better co-operation between the world-of-work in at least education and training sectors.
