DELSA Training consists of 10 courses specifically designed for low-skilled adults to equip them with the digital skills and competences identified in IO2.
The focus of DELSA is not Digital Literacy, but digital competence, described by the OECD as “the ability to use technology to solve problems and accomplish complex tasks”.
More specifically, those set of digital skills and competences include cognitive skills for the information age.
DELSA Training builds on the thorough knowledge of partners in both low-skilled adults (the partnership includes AE providers) and technical content of digital skills and cognitive skills (the partnership includes both public and private providers of specialised training).
Partners already defined the structure of the training content and therefore of the OER, which will be further developed according to the findings of the Capacity Gap Assessment O2.
