TAACTIC, ICT skills for all
The general objective of the TAACTIC project is to identify, develop and make visible the digital basic skills of low-skilled people and vulnerable adult groups in order to improve their social inclusion, the continuation of their training and their access to sustainable and quality employment.
This project will run from November 2019 to April 2022.
Low-skilled adults who are far from employment (LSAs) are particularly confronted with the digital divide and lack the digital skills to adapt to rapid changes in the labour market. Moreover, pedagogical practices in the adult education and training sector are struggling to adapt to this new situation and continue to promote the acquisition of technical skills by considering non-formal learning of key/basic skills, including digital skills. The objective of TAACTIC is to propose practical and operational responses in order to identify, develop and make visible the learning of basic digital skills by low-skilled and vulnerable learners in order to improve their social inclusion, the continuation of their training pathway and their access to sustainable and quality employment.
Expected results and outputs
To put it very simply, TAACTIC will provide answers to educational personnel who are asking themselves the following questions:
- What basic digital skills should my learners have acquired by the end of the training? (IO2 - Common frame of reference/training module)
- Have they already acquired some of these skills? (IO1 - Digital Skills Assessment)
- How can I implement and facilitate the learning of skills they don't have? (IO3 - Learning Activities)
- What more specific skills should my training target so that my learners can direct their career path towards the digital professions of the future? (IO4 and IO5 - recommendations and teaching resources)
TAACTIC will work on the development of basic, technical and transversal digital competences, following an integrated didactic approach adapted to the learning needs of the targeted learners in order to facilitate the engagement and involvement of these audiences. It will propose a reference framework for training in basic digital skills, including a training module to be integrated into all training courses for LSAs, as well as recommendations to adult education operators to develop training courses leading to digital professions, which will provide employment opportunities for the targeted groups. The project will develop a series of resources that can be directly used in the field.
To achieve these objectives, the TAACTIC strategy will be based on the networking of an experienced consortium of seven partners from four countries (Belgium, Spain, France, Italy), made up of federations of training organisations and groups of field players specialising in the field of training and inclusion, in pedagogical and training engineering, including in the digital sector, in order to develop common and innovative educational references and resources.

- AID Coordination (Integrated Development Actions), Brussels, Belgium
- Senscop (Bastia, France)
- EVT (Este, Italy)
- Fundacion Esplai (Barcelona, Spain)
- A Idées Formation (Nivelles, Belgium)
The ultimate ambition is to expand, improve and make more transparent the training offer for LSAs to acquire new skills and benefit from new training and sustainable employment opportunities.
