The DigiLadder project contributes to Finland's success in the transformation of working life and the development of citizens' digital skills, so that groups of people currently in digital traps and gaps can also benefit from digital skills.
The project focuses on the needs of three specific groups: freelancer and self-employed persons, aging employees, and young people at risk of unemployment. Each special group has its own needs for digital use or exploitation skills, and for all groups, the DigiLadder project aims to support the return to work, the increase of work, and coping at work.
The project will develop three new operating models, the digital test, the digital drop-out group guidance and support model as well as the actual training content. These models will be used to refine the project's output into a widely disseminated and scalable format, targeting thousands of new trainees from specific groups.
