• DIGITALEUROPE leads the Secretariat of the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition

    3 February 2017The Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition is a multi-stakeholder partnership to tackle the lack of digital skills in Europe and the thousands of unfilled ICT-related vacancies across all industry sectors. Launched in December 2016, the Coalition aims to mobilise all actors that have the capacity to train and re-skill the labour force with the digital skills they need to remain productive and employable.

    The Coalition tackles the skills gaps at all levels, from high-level ICT specialist skills to the skills needed by all citizens to live, work and participate in a digital economy and society. This is both crucial for European industry to remain competitive in the face of rapid advances by its competitors, and for society to remain inclusive in the digital age. Actions are organised around the following themes.

    •    Digital skills for all citizens:  developing digital skills of the general population, for all citizens to be active part of the digital society;
    •    Digital skills for labour force: developing digital skills for the digital economy (upskilling and reskilling workers, jobseekers; actions on career advice and guidance);
    •    Digital skills for the ICT professionals: developing high level digital skills for ICT professionals in all industry sectors;
    •    Digital skills in education: transforming teaching and learning of digital skills in a lifelong learning perspective, including the training of teachers.
