The European Commission adopted the European Skills Agenda in 2016 to provide people with the opportunity to develop skills necessary for today's and tomorrow's jobs. The Agenda clearly emphasised that tackling the skills challenges requires significant policy efforts and systematic reforms in education and training.  

Even three years after adopting the Agenda, 61 million Europeans lack adequate reading, writing, and digital writing skills, and 40% of the European employers cannot find labour with appropriate skills for development and innovation. As with any other transformation, the digital economy will improve some lives but will leave some others behind. It currently seems that B&H will enter the second group unless we start investing in youth.

The project aims to raise youth awareness on digital work and learning possibilities and equip students and unemployed young people with skills necessary for achieving progress in a digital economy with increased competitiveness in the labour market.

TARGET GROUP: Unemployed persons with high school and university degree; Persons with university degree not employed in their field willing to make a career change.
PROJECT DURATION: 12 months (March 2020 – February 2021)
