Period of implementation: 2015-2018
The eCF Council aims to create a transnational partnership between the major players responsible for IT professionals’ enhancement, namely employers, professional associations, social partners, vocational education and training (VET) providers, higher education, research centres, and regulatory bodies, and SMEs, across Europe. This, is in response to the critical mismatch between ICT skills, demand and offer that Europe is suffering both in terms of training and geographical distribution of the required competences against the positions available.
During three years, the eCF Council project partnership built the eCF Alliance, a stable network of reference stakeholders in the ICT sector whose goal is to foster ICT professionalism at the European and international levels.
The partners developed and tested training courses and paths for acquiring 12 e-competences. The courses are publically available in an online training platform.
