Oct 15, 2019News

Create your own project in 45 hours guided by an expert. Participation is free!

Do you want to know how to prepare for the digital job market? Do you want to start working in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)? Sign up now for the free E-DESIGN course!

Through the course you will develop technical skills in coding, Arduino and website development. The activities of the course will also allow you to increase your skills in creative thinking, problem solving, teamwork and design thinking, skills that are extremely important for any job in the future.

Today, 71% of all jobs require a good level of digital skills. In the near future, it is expected that this need will affect at least 90% of workers, with new jobs in sectors that do not yet exist and where digital skills will play a very important role. Currently, about half of the entire European population aged 16-74 does not have basic digital skills. For this reason, our course aims to provide a new approach, proposing activities to acquire these skills in an innovative and participatory way.

The E-DESIGN course is organized by the Centro per lo Sviluppo Creativo Danilo Dolci in collaboration with Booq (http://www.booqpa.org/) while using the space and  materials of IDEAS BOX, a multifunctional space open to young people that will allow to implement the activities with suitable technological tools.

The course is open to everyone but we encourage to participate especially unemployed people and women, who can be Italian but also from other countries, who want to enter a world of work that is constantly changing!

At the end of the course you will receive a certificate in which the skills acquired will be certified.
