‘Job Connect Launchers’ is a new format of launchers. They allow employment guidance to be adapted to the challenges of the digital era, to the challenges of the global job market, continually changing and increasingly technological; which evolves rapidly and demands the digital transformation of all professions.
The programme will directly drive the digital transformation and improve the employability of more than 6,000 unemployed people; although the performance of supplementary activities could reach 49,700 potential beneficiaries..
‘Job Connect Launchers’ changes the structure and offers two main activities with a progressive digital transformation: ‘Digital literacy’ and ‘Job Connect Launcher’, which will last 8 months and attend to at least 32 people.
There are two objectives: help more people and offer a more personalised and digital employment guidance, adapted to the technological training and needs of each unemployed person.
Each activity is different, aimed at a different audience, having different activities, content, methodology and duration. Subsequently, it is not possible to participate in the two; each person must select one option or the other, depending on their level of digital skills.
– Digital Literacy is a one month course to improve the basic digital skills to search for work. It consists of 30 hours of training for 10 unemployed people (18-60), who will learn to open an email account to search for work; to use an office software suite to create a CV, a data base or a professional presentation. They will also take the plunge into the digital environment to learn how to search for work on the internet and social media via different devices.
– Job Connect Launcher is a four month programme to learn how to search for work on the internet, while reinforcing transversal and digital skills. There are 20 places available for unemployed people (18-60). Emotional intelligence dynamics will be used to learn how to develop a job search plan, update CVs and simulated job interviews will be held; employability maps and visits to companies. They will follow the methodology of launchers, but with a progressive digitisation. There will be face to face sessions during the first few weeks, but more technological techniques and tools will be gradually introduced, including activities with videoconferencing, virtual community participation and webinar cycles with experts to reinforce their transversal and digital skills, to improve their learning in the digital era and better their employability in the current market.
