AXESS: Acquisition of Key Competences for Economic and Social Sustainability (KA2 - Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices)

 

AXESS is the concrete answer to specific needs in the field of upskilling adults, with focus on Digital Skills for low skilled adult women. The ultimate goal of the project is to enhance employability of women through
developed and more proactive social and civic engagement. In today´s world this is firmly linked with the level of digital skills. The above mentioned competences (sense of sense of initiative and entrepreneurship, social and civic competences, digital competence) are among 8 Key Competences of Lifelong Learning formulated by the European Commission. Also OECD deals with competences of adults, notably in the Programme for the
International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC). The survey of problem solving in technology-rich environments, among other things, revealed that women in some countries have less developed digital skills than men. AXESS addresses the needs of target groups (adult women) by developing and deploying concrete training and educational resources (OER, open educational resources) for adult women to advance their digital competencies and skills.
