Digital Competences for the Job Market
ÖJAB coordinates the Erasmus+ funded project FUTURE SKILLS that started in March 2022.
About The Project
The main aim of the project is to prepare young people from socially disadvantaged communities, from Austria and Hungary adequately for the job market of the future, putting a particular focus on the development of digital literacy and competences. Digital readiness and awareness of requirements will play a key role for young people in the future job market. On the other hand, several social skills such as communication skills, teamwork, commitment and motivation, stress resistance and resilience, etc. are becoming more important on the workplace as well. These two idea threads build the foundation of FUTURE SKILLS, a cross-border pilot project.Project handbook (EN, 13 MB)
