The project was inspired by the first Migracode, Migracode Spain (2018-3-ES02-KA205-012299), where the main goal was to match two main needs and contexts:
- the demand for digital skills in the EU labour market and
- the need for the vulnerable to have equal access to opportunities in education and employment.
Hence, the idea is to replicate its scope in the local communities, by starting a new Coding School. In this project, these NGOs are the Föreningen Framtidståget & Ticket2Europe. The expansion of digital upskilling and employability skills schools network will enable the implementation of good-case practices that will be generated through the Project’s activities.
We have designed 3 short-term training events that will cover different but important aspects of social integration and IT Industry: Vocational Training, Skills Certification, Employability & Hiring Processes Standardization, Increase of Graduation Rate and The role of Youth Work in these aspects above).
To better understand the needs of refugees and align IT innovative educational programs upon them, in order to develop their skills and indeed help them;
To standardize and automate the graduation rate and recruitment process of students, creating a strategy to bring companies closer to students;
To enhance the employability of students by aligning the digital skills curricula taught, with EU IT Certifications Standards (ex. ECDL);
To implement non-formal education practices, when teaching them hard & soft skills;
To strengthen the community and network of the organizations of the consortium, by engaging stakeholders, such as companies, foundation, local authorities and European Partners, as well as empowering 5 local NGOs to join the network and open a coding school for migrants.
