Developing digital competence for employability: Engaging and supporting stakeholders with the use of DigComp

Abstract: 

Digital competence has become crucial for employability. A key challenge is for employees and job-seekers, who may not have experience or confidence with their digital skills yet the nature of their jobs, the sectors they work in and their lives are increasingly influenced by digitalisation. This report aims to provide some light to the question of which policy options could, in a practical and effective way, encourage and support labour market intermediaries in their digital skilling actions, with the use of DigComp. The report has been prepared through a collaborative work between the European Commission Joint Research Centre, the Basque Government and a set of experts, on behalf of, and in collaboration with Directorate General of Employment, Social affairs and Inclusion.
