National Coalitions for Digital Skills and Jobs are partnerships between digital skills actors in Member States who work together to improve digital skills at national, regional or local level.

National Coalitions

National Coalitions bring together ICT and ICT-using companies, education and training providers, education and employment ministries, public and private employment services, associations, non-profit organisations and social partners, who develop concrete measures to bring digital skills to all levels of society.

They collaborate in areas such as increasing industry-led training, certifying skills, improving school and university curricula, and raising awareness about ICT careers, especially among young people and women.

National Coalitions and emerging initiatives

There are currently 17 National Coalitions and emerging initiatives and more are expected to be launched in 2017.

Join an existing National Coalition

We invite you to contact your National Coalition to support their effort in your country. For doing so you can either get in touch with them directly, or contact the Digital Skills and Jobs Secretariat, who will liaise with the relevant coordinating body at the national level.

Start a new National Coalition

If there is no National Coalition in your country you can contact the Digital Skills and Jobs Secretariat and discuss how to start a one. The Secretariat can give advice on how to build a successful Coalition and help you get started.

Get in touch

To get more information about the Coalition join our LinkedIn community, follow us on Twitter and Facebook or send an email to the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition Secretariat.
