Digital skills and social inclusion: EUnited We Code
Eunited We Code is a European project co-funded by the Erasmus+ program aiming to foster the innovative pedagogy developed by the social enterprise Simplon.co. This methodology facilitates the integration of vulnerable populations in the tech sector through digital skills learning. The partnership includes five organisations and will build a European network of social coding schools.
The EUnited We Code project aims to address a European dual issue: a very high unemployment rate (7,3%) coupled to a digital gap growing wider due to a lack of training of basic digital competences, especially for disadvantaged groups and an increasing need for professionals in the ICT sector.
In order to face the challenge of mass unemployment, Simplon.co has set up a free digital training methodology for people from vulnerable backgrounds. The Simplon’s pedagogy is based on active and participative learning and has proven itself in France and Europe!
A digital and inclusive ecosystem
The European partnership EUnited we code includes five associations in four Member States (France, Belgium, Spain and Romania) that will work together to strengthen the dissemination of the Simplon’s model.
Partners will challenge themselves around different topics such as sharing training models and practices, exchanges between trainers and VET (vocational education and training) mentors from different countries, talking about national issues, etc.
