Skillage is an online software application that helps young people to understand the more sophisticated ICT skills needed for the job market. Developed by Telecentre-Europe with the support of Microsoft , this youth assessment tool is now available in 20 European countries as a Beta online and will be promoted via social media channels. A number of studies have highlighted the shortcomings in young peoples’ ICT skills for the modern workplace, and that ICT will be a part of 90% of jobs in the near future.

e-Skills Week in a nutshell Take a look at some key facts and figures about the highly successful 2012 e-Skills Week campaign! European e-Skills Week 2012 Wraps Up Brussels Wednesday 24 October 2012 : Youth unemployment in Europe has peaked at record levels and shows little sign of slowing.
24 January 2012 – The United Nations launched a new web portal today focusing on helping girls and women access job opportunities, training and career advice in the information and communication technology (ICT) sector. The website – girlsinict.org – was designed to inspire and help young women between the ages of 11 and 25 prepare for and pursue careers in technology by providing them with useful resources such as links to scholarships, internships, ICT contests and awards, tech camps and online networks where they can interact with other women working in an industry that is largely male-dominated. “It’s a little-known fact that women were the original programmers of ENIAC, the US Government’s first ever computer. But while teenage girls now use computers and the Internet at rates similar to boys, they are five times less likely to consider a technology-related career,” the UN International Telecommunication Union ( ITU ) said in a news release.
Technology skills are vital in driving a competitive and innovative Europe, as they provide the essential tools and knowledge for the workforce to access better jobs, enhancing overall workforce employability across sectors and functions. The European e-Skills Week 2012 campaign highlights this growing need for skilled ICT users and professionals, and seeks to inform students, young professionals and SMEs about the range of opportunities that ICT-related jobs present. This campaign is led by the European Commission’s DG Enterprise and Industry , in coordination with DIGITAL EUROPE and the European Schoolnet .
