About the Programme
Enabling people to develop the confidence and the skills they need for future employment in a digital economy
Freeformers and Facebook are working with various in-country partners and NGOs in six countries across Europe (Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Poland, UK) to bring the Digital Skills Training Programme to 75,000 18-30 year olds.
The Digital Skills Training Programmes are highly engaging face-to-face events, comprised of a series of workshops, that are designed to help young people build their digital confidence and skills that will help their future careers.
This programme focuses on enabling people to develop the confidence & skills they need to be employable in a digital economy - the same skills that employers across Europe have identified as lacking in the current workforce.
Why is Digital Skills training important?
Digital Skills Training Modules
This programme is underpinned by the Freeformers Future Workforce Model. Developed by Freeformers with support from the EDUCATE team at University College London, the model is based on primary research (from clients and learners), and extensive secondary research.
The model seeks to understand what employers want, what citizens need and bridge any gaps between the two. Accompanying each attribute in the model is learning material and question sets to allow learners to measure their progress as they move through the programme. This builds confidence in participants so that they can transition from “learning to earning.”
Operating across 6 European countries
