International Erasmus+ KA2 program project
“Digital Educational Platform for Soft Skills & Culture of Labour Market”

Alytus Business Advisory Centre invites you to participate in the activities of the international project “Digital Educational Platform for Soft Skills and Labour Market Culture”, which aims to build a digital framework for reverse migration, labour market culture and new competencies in the education sector.

The project focuses on adult education, cultural identity of the labour market, adaptation of return migration to the labour market, and the development of soft skills digital training with a dedicated educational platform.
Success in the labour market depends on workers with the right skills. The COVID-19 pandemic has further increased the need to retrain and upskill the workforce to adapt to a changing environment. For example, more than 90% of current jobs in almost all sectors require some level of digital skills, yet in 2019 only 56% of adults had basic digital skills.

These skills are known as general skills or basic skills, which are desirable in all occupations. These include: critical thinking, problem solving, public speaking, teamwork, digital literacy, leadership, professional attitude, professional ethics, career management and intercultural communication.

The project’s action plan is divided into three priorities:
1. Using digital technologies for teaching and independent learning of SOFT SKILLS;
2. Digital competencies training for the development of the SOFT SKILLS of adult educators;
3. Access to adult education services through digitisation in a VIRTUAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT.
Project objective:
1. To adapt and to use digital learning technologies and digital tools to develop soft skills for the successful integration of migrants into the labour market;
2. Improving the digital literacy competences of adult education professionals to improve educational management in the non-formal education sector;
3. Providing new adult education services through access to virtual learning environments.
Target groups:
1. Low-skilled adult learners /migrants, their communities and refugees/, staff of educational communities and associations working in the education sector;
