The main CODE project objective is to provide opportunities for quality employment to vulnerable young people at poverty risk such as orphans, children of working poor people, young people in rural areas, single parents, minority groups, young graduates. For the period of 30 months since the start of the project we have developed and we implement a joint training program for specialised digital competences, such as digital design, graphics, 3D animation and game design for these young people that otherwise cannot afford to obtain hi-tech knowledge due to restrictions coming from their financial situation. So far, the trainings have met with great interest. Approximately 200 youngsters have participated in the 3D animation and graphic design courses in Bulgaria, Estonia, Italy, Greece, Latvia and Romania. Within the framework of courses, young people not only learned the theory, they have created their own videos, photos, 3D concepts, t-shirt layouts. Through the specific knowledge received through the courses trainees gain more chances to realise themselves on the labor market – 2 of our graduates started work in the creative industry, 15 continue their training and education after finishing our courses, 5 collaborate with companies in the field of 3D animation, 5 started their own business. Our team is proud about the results achieved so far, as they prove that we have succeeded in our mission to motivate young people to continue their education and to raise their competitiveness in the creative industries labour market.
