Investing in Digital Transition

The COVID-19 pandemic shed further light on the importance of digital education for the digital transformation that Europe needs. In particular, it emphasized the increased need to harness the potential of digital technologies for teaching and learning and to develop digital skills for all. Vocational education and training play a key role in innovation and digital transitions as well as in the resilience of a post-COVID-19 Europe. VET sector is well placed to respond to the skills challenges posed by digitalization given its close ties with the labour market. The European Vocational Training Association (EVTA) has been actively involved in projects and advocacy initiatives aiming at enhancing digital skills and competence development at all levels of society. It currently supports the digital transition in VET sector through the implementation of various EU funded projects that aim at reinforcing digital capacities of VET ecosystem.  

 In the framework of its VIP-NET programme (Visibility, Policy engagement, Network Strengthening), EVTA is organizing a series of online events “Coffee Breaks“ aimed at exploring how education and training can contribute to the achievement of the 4 European Commission priorities included in the Erasmus + programme. These events have the objectives to raise awareness on the priorities, give visibility to best practices, and foster cooperation between VET providers and stakeholders, adopting a peer-to-peer perspective.  

 During the “Investing in Digital Transition” event, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the framework established by the European Commission to support digital transformation and advance digital skills development. The event will feature presentations from EVTA and its members who will share best practices and projects related to inclusive digital education, digital upskilling of VET practitioners and SME’s workforce.  

The event will be moderated by Alessandra Frassetto, EU Policy and Project Officer at the EVTA.
