ORT France is aware of the actual societal challenges such as technological progress, digitalization, demographic aging and low skilled workforce. The digital transformation of the economy is re-shaping the way people work and do business. New ways of working are affecting the types of skills needed, including innovation and entrepreneurship. To address such challenges ORT is working to improve the digital skills at the national level by developing skills for students, jobseekers, NEETs (people not in Education, Employment or Training) and all people that want to build up their capacities and provide for life-long learning.
The objective of this pledge is to help unemployed people to enter in the workforce by providing them with digital skills that are currently lacking in the job market. During 2017-2018 ORT France will train and guide up to 1,200 unemployed people towards an ICT career path by a blended methodology of in person and online learning through an online social platform integrating the principles of Gamification to create, identify, engage and create collaboration among a job seekers, job centres and employers.
