Business Foundation for Education is part of a European team implementing Ask4Job project which takes inspiration from the COM 2016 – 381 Final, which urges to up-skill and re-skill the European labour force with the digital skills to keep them productive at the workplaces. In the near future, the majority of the jobs will require a certain degree of digital competences, while an increasing number of elementary jobs will at least require some basic competences. By contrast, in Europe 70 million people lack adequate reading and writing skills, and even more have poor numeracy and digital skills, putting them at risk of unemployment, poverty and social exclusion. More than half of the 12 million long-term unemployed are considered as low-skilled adults. (COM (2016) 381 Final).
In order to support their up – skilling ASK4JOB will produce a set of tools to assess, educate and recognize digital-literacy competences. This result is going to be achieved through the realisation of 3 products, having as primary beneficiaries long-term unemployed adults and as secondary ones professional counsellors and educators of adults, as well as all the other professional figures involved in supporting activities for adult job seekers.
The partners gathered in Lodz, Poland, on the 4th and the 5th, October, to plan the next steps for the elaboration of the Ask4Job training program.
