The pandemic caused by Covid-19 has severely affected young people’s chances at the transition from school to training and working life. This challenge is addressed by the “Simply Digi” strategic partnership. Against the background of the difficult access of young people from school to training and working life, we develop, pilot and implement innovative methods and procedures that make it possible to enable practice-oriented and realistic experiences with the professional world even under limited conditions.
To this end, we pursue in particular the following goals:
- To provide young people to gain insights into professions and the world of work using digital tools.
- Development, testing, and use of innovative approaches for virtual and distance encounters between young people, counsellors, companies, trainers, parents, teachers.
- To create “bridges” between schools and companies that enable students and companies to articulate and present themselves digitally and authentically
To achieve these goals, we from Austria, Germany and Italy came together to jointly develop solutions that can also be implemented under different conditions in other European countries.
