Project DIGITAL SKILLS 50+
The aim of the project was to enhance the quality of training programs addressed at unemployed persons, in particular persons aged 50 +.
The project was carried out with the participation of 4 partner organizations from 4 countries, from Poland, The Czech Republic, Netherlands and Hungary.
During the implementation of the project we have reached the following results:
exchange of experiences between partners from different countries;
examination of the situation of people aged 50 + on the labour market, the level of digital literacy of people aged 50 +, the level of access to modern technology, and identification of programs/projects that exist in the partner countries in support of the development of digital literacy;
identification of the reasons for lack or limited use of modern technologies by the representatives of the target group (identifying the barriers) and analyzing the impact of the digital exclusion on their situation on the labour market.
designing a pilot training model aimed at developing digital literacy among unemployed people aged 50 + which is a manual and a compendium for trainers engaged in teaching the elderly or willing to include ICT classes to the courses for elderly people;
running pilot training for the representatives of the target group;
developing digital literacy among unemployed people aged 50 + who participated in the pilot training
enabling participants to acquire competencies at the level sufficient for them to use digital technologies in everyday life, in the area which interests them most; making it possible for them to look for a job over the Internet independently, to make a video resume and apply for a job online.
During the implementation of the project, all the time we ran promotional and dissemination activities. We created the project website, where we put information about the project and project output. In addition, we set up a project page on Facebook. We prepared periodical newsletters (5 newsletters in total, prepared after each partnership meeting), which were distributed via email to the institutions cooperating with the project partners. Each of the partners conducted promotional and dissemination activities in their local environment.
After pilot training and obtaining feedback from training participants, we developed the final form of the training model aimed at developing digital competence. It is the output and final result of the project.
