This website collects information about the progress of the pledges in the context of the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition.
The Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition brings together Member States, companies, social partners, non-profit organisations and education providers who take action to tackle the lack of digital skills in Europe.
The Coalition tackles the need for digital skills at all levels:
All organisations, groups, businesses or government bodies who take action to boost digital skills in Europe can become members of the Coalition by endorsing the objectives and principles of the Charter.
Members are encouraged to pledge for action to train more digital experts, re-skill and up-skill the labour force and provide citizens with the digital skills they need for their lives.
Member States can mobilise partners and form local, regional and national Digital Skills and Jobs Coalitions, which carry out actions in their countries to tackle the digital skills gap. Member States have been invited to develop digital skills strategies by mid-2017. To help them identify challenges and potential actions, experts have put together a model strategy, the so-called shared concept
The information is provided by the pledging organizations themselves and does only present the activity directly linked to the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition. It cannot be considered therefore as representative of the overall activity carried out in this domain by the pledging organisations.
Furthermore, because of their different timeframes and typologies, this information is not intended for the purpose of comparing or benchmarking the pledges. Moreover, the impacts of the different activities implemented by the pledges cannot be added because of a number of overlaps. For example, the people involved in the training courses may be the same people involved in internships or in awareness raising campaigns.
