Skill, upskill, and reskill individuals

Our 1-year long study on emerging and current job-ready software skills led to the development of an EU Software Skills Strategy and, soon, educational profiles. The VET curricula and programmes we design will bring concrete solutions to up-/reskill individuals into in-demand software-related jobs.

Educating for jobs

We know how challenging it can be to keep programmes up to date. Our job is to offer you ready-to-unroll programmes. It will be fit to train people for professional software roles. On top of that, we are also working on certification and accreditation frameworks, and an EU mobility programme. One step at a time.

Coming In 2022

Stronger together

Obviously, it is harder to reach any achievement when working in silos. That's why we want to open your opportunities by nurturing a practice-oriented community so you can connect with your peers and also with people from the larger software communities in Europe.
