MOOCs in Basic Skills Training

Soft skills are more needed than occupational skills in the “new” industry. The question is how these will enhance low skilled employees, and how we can prepare a curriculum for better training for the target group. If a common training framework for low skilled employees is to be put in place; how to accommodate all partners’ needs?

These two questions arose at the end of the Erasmus+ project BASIC SKILLS IN WORKING LIFE ( and main outcomes based on a large number of quantitative and qualitative data collected from eight different branches in six European countries.

To answer these questions now in the present project, we will produce curricula for practical training courses on the most important social skills in working life for low skilled workers with a demand for new skills and / or formal qualification in these, supported by digital learning maps and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).
