Training Course

About the Project

Digital technologies are changing the world at an incredible speed and are reshaping how people in Europe live, work and study. Today more than ever, being digitally competent is both a necessity and a right. However, digital skills levels across Europe remain unsatisfactorily low, with 44% of EU citizens having an insufficient level of digital skills. Henceforth, through this project, we propose to increase the quality of Digital Youth Work of NGOs.

Objectives:
1. To improve the proficiency level for DigCompOrg –  “Teaching & learning practices” key element, “Digital Competence of staff and students” sub-element, for 9 Youth NGOs, until the end of the project;

2. To upskill 32 youth workers’ digital competencies for 9 international NGOs, from Newcomer (A1) to Expert (B2), measured as proficiency level in Digital Competence Framework for Educators (DigCompEdu), by the end of the project.

•  is at least 18 years old (no upper limit);

Euroactive NGO volunteers and the members of the communities we are activating in have priority;
• Gender balance;
• Priority will be given to young people with fewer opportunities and young people who have not participated in the Erasmus + program until now.

Costs:
1. The participation costs (accommodation, food, materials, etc.) will be covered by the organizers. Also, the transportation will be reimbursed according to the attached Info-pack and Erasmus+ regulations (maximum 360 euro/participant);

2. The selected candidates must advance the amounts necessary to cover the transport costs to the place of the course, using the cheapest means of transportation: flight ticket (economy class, low cost), train ticket (2nd class), bus, etc.;

This project fully implements a practice of GREEN TRAVEL, in line with priorities set within the Erasmus+ Programme guide for 2021 – 2027.
