Summary
To survive in a rapidly changing world, everyone already needs a wide range of knowledge and skills which to continue developing throughout their lives. This is a key message of the New Skills Agenda for Europe. Without the right skills, many find themselves in low-quality jobs, unemployed or under-qualified for the new generation of job opportunities. Without basic digital literacy and digital skills, everyday life can now be a challenge.
The Covid-19 pandemic has created new economic and social realities in European countries, and outlined the need for special efforts to promote digitalisation. There is a need for structured tools for informed decision-making and logical development of digital skills throughout the vocational education and training (VET) sector.
The project addresses - key digital challenges posed by Covid-19 - digital transformation and intelligent use of digital tools in VET.

 :
- Adapting a model of competence framework in the field of digital skills - defining levels of knowledge and skills from the European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators (DigCompEdu) and DigCompOrg Framework (for organizations), which will allow the effective development of training organizations and the teaching staff.
- Creating tools for recognition and validation of acquired knowledge and skills through innovative digital open badges.
- Create resources to train teachers on how to use adapted frameworks in their work and how to assess their digital deficits and needs, and those of the organizations in which they teach.
