The D@YW project pioneers to design a Complete Tool Kit and a Knowledge Pack for developing, implementing and monitoring various inclusive strategies for promoting deep digital skills in youth work aiming to bridge the digital gap and promote the creation of partnerships between the Youth Work, stakeholders, institutions, the labour market, policy maker, ICT experts, providers and enterprises by:
The direct target group is young people (16-22 yrs.) in need, especially girls as purported by the 2018 Digital Action Plan, whereas an indirect target group is youth workers, whose profiles will be upgraded and strengthened.
The project aims to strengthen the profiles of the Youth Workers and also upgrade the quality of Youth Work through the development of Complete Tool Kit accompanied with a set of new teaching and learning material to support the acquisition of high-tech digital skills of young people.
The project will be prepared with a professional development course for digital up skilling. One will introduce the DIGITAL@YOUTHWORK program with the intended progress and the needed indicators. A validation system is also proposed to make digital skills visible, transparent and recognised.
The project in its entirety persecute the goal attainment of development of deep tech digital skills as striven for in recent reports of the EU, e.g. 2018 Digital Action Plan, 2017 New Skills Agenda, 2018 Renewed Key Competences as approach to bridge the digital gap with labour.
