Future Work – how to equip trainers with competences to provide learners with skills for agile and digital work

Today, it is often argued that flexibility helps organizations get more from their employees and teams. Many businesses now offer flexible working structures to help employees improve their work/life balance. Some, however, do go even much further, i.e. by implementing ‘‘AGILE WORKING’’ practices in order to enable all staff to work wherever and whenever they want, with the help of latest technologies.

Businesses and employees need to get prepared for digital future work environments, but according to the European Commission (Digital Education Plan, Action 2 SELFIE Tool, 2018) only 20-25% of learners are taught by teachers/trainers who are confident with technology use.

The project aims to analyse missing digital skills of trainers and beneficiaries with the help of SELFIE which is based on the Framework for Digitally competent educational organizations (Digcomporg) developed by the European Commission and then build upon the achieved results a FUTURE WORK MANUAL AND TOOLBOX FOR TRAINERS, as well as a FUTURE WORK SKILLSAPP – a mobile app for both learner groups, teachers/trainers and adult learners.
