What is the role of the "Digital competence promoter"?

The DC4Work project focuses on the necessary digital skills that a workplace 4.0 needs. The aim of each company should therefore be to promote digital competences for a better employability and therein the competitiveness of the company. For that we suggest to appoint a “Digital competence promoter” in your company or organization.

The ability of executives to identify their employees digital skills needs and to appropriately support their development is of growing importance for a company’s prosperity and success. This tasks as innovator and mentor of digital knowledge & skills at the workplace should be taken over by a “Digital competence promoter” of the company. His or her task is to enable colleagues or staff members to be aware of their improvement potential regarding digital competences and translate it into action.

What about the “European Digital Competence Framework for Citizens”?


What is DigComp?

We live in a digital society and it is essential that everyone is ‘digitally competent’ to access the new opportunities to learn, work, create and engage in a society which is shaped by digital technology.

The European Commission has developed DigComp: the European Digital Competence Framework as a reference framework to explain what it means to be ‘digitally competent’.

DigComp is about people. The framework does not focus on devices or software but seeks to support confident, critical and responsible use of digital technology by people.
