Bringing together partners from Lithuania, Greece, Germany and Slovenia, the second partners’ meeting of Entrepreneurial Skills for Women in a Digital World, an Erasmus-funded project, took place in Athens, Greece on July 16-17. The project’s progress as well as its key activity – a training programme for women and educators of non-formal adult education institutions with the focus on entrepreneurial, project management and digital skills – was discussed in detail at the meeting.
‘Combination of project management, digital literacy, entrepreneurship is what makes this learning strategy innovative and unique,” says Inga Zemaitiene, the project manager from Lithuania. ‘Rather than teaching the three subjects separately, the training integrates them into a single coherent course focusing on communication, creativity, critical thinking and digital skills without which professional success is next to unthinkable,” she added.
The programme will be developed in five languages and will be tested in adult non-formal education institutions at the beginning of the next year.
The two year project focuses on improving women skills in light of unfolding changes in the labour market of the digital age.
