SME Employees

90% of jobs are expected to require some kind of digital competence in the near future. These digital skills are necessary for workers to form part of the new economy, characterised by the digitalisation of employment, and not to be excluded from it.

The digitisation of the European workforce

37% of European workers currently have insufficient digital skills, and there is a close link between this shortage and the degree of employability. This shortage of skills needed to meet the new requierements of the employment market is gradually being perceived by workers themselves, who are expressing concern about the consequences for their employability and proffesional development.

Aware of the pressing need to support the development of digital skills for citizens, various training programmes for all levels of education are required to promoting the active engagement of companies and organisations and foster inclusion across society as a whole.

Why engage:

1.SMEs in all regions are being affected by digital transformation and will require the access to new skills in the immediate near future. To support this a proven, training programme and structure will enable regional actors to upskill their population and make them more prosperous. 

2.Take part in intensive, complete KETs courses with a measured balance of technical and non-technical competences to update and improve your skillset.

2. Improve the employability; with whatever digital skills developed, it would support participants career opportunities, both within their current company and with a new company to be able to demonstrate and have a portfolio of previous work.
