A space dedicated to providing training itineraries aimed at vulnerable people.
Together with the Red Cross, we are inaugurating ‘Fundación Telefónica Lab’, a training classroom where the ‘Promotion and Digital Skills for Employment’ programme will be taught, aimed at improving the employability of vulnerable people in an increasingly digitalised labour market.
The Red Cross headquarters in Valdecanillas (Madrid) will host ‘Fundación Telefónica Lab’, a space dedicated to providing training itineraries aimed at vulnerable people. The classroom was inaugurated by José Luis Martínez-Almeida, Mayor of Madrid, together with Pilar Roy, President of the Red Cross in the Community of Madrid, and Carmen Morenés, Director General of Fundación Telefónica.
The attendees, in addition to visiting the entire Red Cross centre in Valdecanillas (Madrid), stopped during the tour at the classroom where the ‘Fundación Telefónica Lab’ training programme: Promotion and Digital Skills for employment will be taught.
The main objective of this programme will be to boost employment opportunities for vulnerable people thanks to training in digital skills, which are essential to be able to apply for the jobs that the current labour market demands.
For the creation of the training itinerary of this project our social action team has been based on the European Framework of Digital Competences (DIGCOMP) with a special focus on citizen participation, such as:
- online procedures
- the digital certificate or the electronic ID card
- safe use of the internet.
Thanks to this training, volunteers and those accompanying vulnerable people in this process will acquire a particularly high level of these skills so that they understand each concept at all times and ensure their autonomy.
At Fundación Telefónica we are currently working hand in hand with 18 social organisations and NGOs to promote the development of digital skills in different vulnerable groups with the ultimate aim of leaving no one behind in this era of permanent change and adaptation to an increasingly digitalised society and labour market.
