Certiport and its European network of partners support the European Commission’s Digital Skills for Jobs Campaign to ensure all Europeans have access to digital skills
What is the EC campaign digital skills and jobs coalition: The Digital Skills for Jobs Coalition is an initiative of the European Commission that is designed to mobilize all types of organizations in Europe to ensure that everyone can get the digital skills they need for life, for education, for employment and for IT professional careers.
Certiport is a member of this EU coalition – supporting its aims and we are also a pledger – which means we have made a concrete commitment of how we will contribute towards solving the skills gaps.
More on what the aims are:
Train 1 million young unemployed people for vacant digital jobs through internships/traineeships, apprenticeships and short-term training programmes.

Modernise education and training to provide all students and teachers with the opportunity to use digital tools and materials in their teaching and learning activities and to develop and upgrade their digital skills
