Project: Digital Shift / Partner Profile: GUG

  • by

The Digital Shift (Digitální směna) program targets single parents who lost income during the pandemic, and who lack the skills and technology necessary to find a remote job suitable for the current dynamic job market. Digital Shift aims to foster motivation around digital tools and teach basic skills to individuals with low digital literacy levels to close the digital gap present in Czechia. 

Digital Shift is a 3-month online training available all over the country. Students follow asynchronous videos and are given exercises to be completed to progress through each module. They can also get personalised support from trainers. Additionally, a community approach is adopted, keeping students engaged and motivated throughout the course. Through a dedicated Facebook group, students can discuss issues related to the course and support each other.

The curriculum aligns with three areas of the Digital Competence Framework for Citizens: Information and data literacy, Communication and collaboration, and Digital Content Creation.

Digital Shift is running from June 2022 to May 2023.
