The Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition Governing Board presented a nine-point Action Plan outlining the Coalition’s priorities for the coming months. The Plan sets out how to expand current membership to all sectors of the economy, especially small and medium enterprises (SMEs), how to include all actors and networks that work on the ground with digital skills actions and how to ensure that the EU’s future budget includes a focus on the development of digital competences to support the ongoing digital transformation.
This conference contributes to the EU Skills Agenda. It aims to help increase Europe’s digital talent pool and the digital capabilities of enterprises.
Between December 2016 and July 2018, members of the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition offered 10.9 million Europeans a chance to improve their digital skills. In total, 7.4 million digital skills trainings were provided, 1.9 million certifications were delivered and 1.6 million people were reached through awareness-raising campaigns. Moreover, 23 National Coalitions are now working on the ground, promoting digital skills policies and actions.
