Digital skills for employment

The new demands of the digital economy accentuate the need to develop advanced digital skills in both unemployed people -to improve their employability- and employed people -so that they can continuously adapt to new demands throughout their working lives.

To respond to this need, it is essential to increase the supply of digital profiles within the working population. The starting point is the identification of specific digital skills with a deficit or surplus in the labor market. From that point, a diagnosis must be made, which will be different for each sector. Although the key digital skills will be different depending on the sector of the economy, if modular training is promoted, it will always be possible to identify certain "knowledge blocks" that are common to all sectors.

The actions to be carried out this way are structured along three lines:

  • Digital skills training throughout working life.
  • Training in digital skills for people in the service of public administrations.
  • Development of digital skills for SMEs.
