Open call for interested stakeholders to join the I-LINC platform for ICT (for) learning and inclusion focused on boosting the employability of young people.
Due to the high youth unemployment rate in Europe there is a need to put all our efforts to achieving the goals of employability and entrepreneurship for our future generations. In the ICT industry particularly, but also in other industries wherever employers need people with ICT skills, the skills gap is quickly widening.
I-LINC aims to develop a sustainable and all encompassing platform on the topic of ICT (for) learning and inclusion. The I-LINC platform will be an online environment for networking, participation and learning that will focus on boosting the employability and entrepreneurship capacities of young people. The project will benefit and gather existing platforms, networks and resources that are available on the topic of ICT (for) learning and inclusion. The project will also develop an active community of stakeholders in the field while linking them to the main beneficiaries - young people.
The platform will facilitate stakeholders’ deliberations to modernise education through ICT, provide inclusive alternatives to formal education brought from the non-formal education sector and the third sector, and create a new “digital” path for employment for young people (and, by extension, to those at risk of social exclusion).
