The LAPIS project aims to increase opportunities for effective work-based learning and recognition of informal learning for better adult social care practice, and to support innovation and skills development in the adult social care sector. The project will bring together a set of European and UK based partners, from across the Education, Digital Technology and Care sectors, over a three-year period, and we are funded by Erasmus+. The needs addressed by this project were identified in the previous Erasmus + Project 'Helpcare' (www.helpcare-project.org) completed in 2018.

The digital age is expanding into all areas of our lives, and it is not just those working in IT that will need to be ready for the digital transformation. “The digital skills gap is real. While 90% of future jobs require some level of digital literacy, 44% of Europeans lack basic digital skills” (quote from Mariya Gabriel, the current European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society).
The digitalization of the economy is one of the most important drivers behind the profound transformation of the labour market. An increased demand of digital skills which is expected to still grow will be must be balanced. The digitalization which demands digital skills as future transversal skills is happening right now and will change the work requirements and will challenge everybody.
Given the recognized importance of digital skills for an effective implementation of ICT in the workplace, the main challenge for employers is to make sure that the supply of digital skills within the workforce matches its demand at the labour market and enterprise level, in terms of both required type and level of skills.
Effective youth work and non-formal education can help young people to empower themselves and encourage their active participation in society. It equips them with skills, competences and experiences for life, thereby maximizing the protective factors which enhance the development, well-being, autonomy and e-inclusion of all young people, including those with fewer opportunities.
The partners from Germany (2), Cyprus, Spain, UK & Italy will aim to upgrade youth work and skills, but also to ensure social inclusion, access and participation, through the design, development and evaluation of a Complete Tool Kit and Educational Pack for developing, implementing and monitoring digital strategies in Youth Work. We also aim to research and share ‘deep-tech’ skills such as coding, robotics, ecommerce, web, graphic and media design, targeted to the needs of the labour market for specific job digital profiles while providing Career Orientation opportunities - to open up new routes for linking youth work with education and Training.
PROMOTING ENTREPRENEURSHIP THROUGH AN INTEGRATED CAREER ORIENTATION PROGRAMME AND FLEXIBLE LEARNING PATHWAYS FOR VET STUDENTS
The transition from school into professional life is one of the most challenging moments in life. A competitive job market requires young people to, not only possess a relevant qualification but also the ability to apply their skills in the workplace, to be adaptive, and to act in an entrepreneurial way.
Developing a career is a process, not just a destination. Unfortunately, not enough attention is paid to the developmental process required to engage in thoughtful, thorough career development. We will design, implement and evaluate a CAREER GUIDANCE EDUCATIONAL TOOL KIT to support CAREER ADVISORS to strengthen their profiles and in doing so to upgrade their methods and practices for better career orientation towards entrepreneurial competences for VET students.
