Promote Coding Skills: Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition Calls for New Pledges

European CommissionThe Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition, the European Commission initiative aimed at increasing digital skills in all areas of life, invites companies and organisations to make a pledge for action to organise activities related to coding and computational thinking. This is a good opportunity to connect to other stakeholders, raise awareness on the importance of coding, and to showcase relevant activities. Those that wish to make a pledge should focus on organising activities related to providing digital skills training with a special focus on coding; raising awareness about the importance of learning to code; implementing courses, clubs, lessons, and training on coding at different levels of education; and upskilling or re-skilling the workforce by providing training on coding. To participate in this thematic call, your organisation should become a member of the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition and make a pledge for action by the end of December 2017.
