Improve the digital skills of young unemployed Europeans!

Compass is a 2-year pilot project co-financed by the European Commission, running in France, Ireland, Italy and Romania. The project’s aim is to build an online platform for learning and evaluating digital competency. The digitalisation of the economy has made these digital skills a key requirement for many positions and future jobs will require a progressively higher level of competence. First Beneficiaries: young unemployed (15-30 years old) Employers, Recruiters, Education and Training stakeholders. First Beta launch: Scheduled for the beginning of 2018
