ABOUT THE PROJECT
New technologies are an emerging industry creating employment opportunities and entrepreneurial possibilities. According to projections set out by the European Commission, market demands for qualified information and communications technology (ICT) specialists will not be met, seeing a shortfall of up to 500,000 ICT professionals in 2020. Virtual and augmented reality products are amongst those with some of the highest market demand in the ICT sector.
It is in this context that we will be launching the Jobs4tech project over the next two years, providing vocational training in the relevant skills for employment and entrepreneurship with these technologies.
The general objective of JOBS4TECH is to align Vocational Training (VET) with the needs of the labour market in the new technologies sector, and specifically in virtual and augmented reality, to improve the employability of its students.
To achieve this goal, 8VET professors from the technological area and their students (approximately 120) will experience an integrated itinerary in the field of virtual and augmented reality, which will contemplate in a coordinated way both the teaching of technical skills and the necessary competencies for work as an employee or self in this sector.
This project is led by Acción contra el Hambre (Spain), and Germany, Estonia, Lithuania, as partner countries of the project.
