The digital age is here and now, more than ever, it is essential to support people with skills in the digital world we live in. YOUTHShare contributes to the development of digital skills for NEETs (people not in education, employment or training).
In July the consortium completed a training programme covering concepts and skills in the Social, Sharing and Circular Economy, covering a range of topics including developing social skills, understanding labour markets and new forms of employment, developing entrepreneurial skills to help participants thrive in the new economy.
The aim of the training was to explore the innovative features of the sharing economy. After the training, participants also completed the courses on the platform. One of the courses was the IT Skills in Sharing and Web-based Economy, which include mobile photography: taking and editing photos with a smartphone, mobile filmmaking: how to capture and edit short films with a smartphone, creating and customizing your own website, advanced web design features, google ads and crowdfunding: a way to raise your own funds.
The courses are available on the YOUTHShare platform and anyone can register and complete the course. Upon completion of course 1,2 or 3 and evaluation, users will receive a certificate.
