Description:

Ask4Job is a pathway that supports the development of digital competences and cognitive skills for low-skilled, long-term unemployed adults.

Ask4Job offers an Open Educational Resource that could be adopted by labour market operators and adult educators/trainers, in order to realize activities of specialized employment orientation, aimed at supporting job search and individualized development paths, at personal and professional level. It is composed of

  • a Self-Assessment Tool, to assess digital skills and propose an upskilling pathway,
  • a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), to strengthen digital competencies and cognitive abilities,
  • and Capability Labs, to support learners in job search and career development.

The Ask4Job pathway puts in action the Digital Competence Framework for Citizens (DigComp). The learning path is built on the first 4 proficiency levels of digital knowledge (Foundation and Intermediate), opening the possibility of advancing towards more specialized proficiency levels.

The project and its activities as well as the experiences of trainers and learners will be publicly presented at an online conference on Thursday 27 August 2020 from 14:00 – 17:00 by the Consortium. In addition, invited guest speakers will address the project’s theme from different angles.

The “Adult Skills for Job Oriented Breakthrough” project is funded within by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union and coordinated by the Rome-based employment and training agency ERIFO. ALL DIGITAL is a member of the Consortium.

Would you like to get familiar with the Ask4Job methodology and tools? Visit the project website, learn about the project though this multi-lingual video, or download Trainer Guidelines available in English and many other European languages.
