Short description of the event:

The aim of the event is to showcase a concrete example where digital skills are considered as transversal, or transferable across different work and life contexts. The example is TRANSVAL-EU, a European project which is looking at making transversal skills visible in validation and guidance processes.

Among the twelve transversal skills included in the transversal competence framework, one is focusing on digital aspects: “communicating using digital technologies”. Digital skills can be considered as transversal because they are now considered as basic skills (along with literacy and numeracy). They have become foundational in many life and work contexts. Moreover, some digital skills are highly transferable to any job occupations like using online conferencing/call tools, creating a digital presentation, searching on the internet, posting on social media, etc.

During this webinar, TRANSVAL-EU project partners will explain why in the Transversal competence framework digital skills were considered from a communication point of view. They will also present the results of the collection of tools and methods, which includes a good number of digital tools for the validation of transversal skills. One of the tools which will be presented is NADINE. It helps to identify migrants’ transversal skills using algorithms and an advanced self-assessment questionnaire. Finally, the floor will be open for Q&As, interaction and discussions with the audience on the most relevant tools for assessing digital skills.
