eSkills.dk is working to provide more and better resources to the ICT
currently experiences massive unemployment, technology companies face a
critical shortfall of talented ICT experts. This contradictory picture reveals
a mismatch between the skills on offer and those in demand in today's fast
developing technology market. As a result, Europe might face a shortage of up
to 900,000 ICT professionals by 2020, thereby risking its potential for growth
and digital competitiveness.
the same time, it is becoming more and more difficult to predict the eskills
that we need in the future.
people behind eSkills.dk have been involved in discussions and initiatives
focused on development of eskills for many years, and we are devoted to do a
difference in the future.
focus on 4 areas:
1. Long term: Attract young people to
study science and technology
people behind eSkills.dk have several years of experience with flagging STEM
education for young student in primary and secondary schools. We have organized
national and international events for FIRST LEGO League (FLL) and World Robot
previous jobs we have been the national organizers behind the EU Campaign:
eSkills Week in 2010, 2012 and eSkills for Jobs in 2014 (from where we have
taken our name).
the inception of eSkills.dk this focus area has been of highest priority and we
have already partnered with businesses, municipalities, organizations and the
term: Attract women to ICT studies and a career in the ICT industry
and technology is an issue at the heart of eSkills.dk. For more than a decade
we have been involved in projects like “Girls and Technology”, “ICT camp for
Girls” and similar initatives. It is in part for this reason that eSkills.dk
has been appointed National Point of Contact for the “European Centre for Women
women are the best skilled reserve for more people in the ECT industry.
term: Upgrading of qualifications in the existing work force
Times are changing
faster than ever. New technologies are emerging constantly and ways of working
are evolving. As a result, we must all update our qualifications all the time.
Lifelong learning is key and therefore we need access to elearning that
offers us the qualifications that we
need, as well as training in new technology when we need it and where we need
needs are global and eSkills.dk is involved in projects that, on a European
level, try to offer new ways to meet them.
4. Short term: Re-employ
seniors on a part time basis
Many thousands of high skilled professionals, such as IT architects, Project
Managers, DataBase specialist and others, have been forced to take early
retirement from many of the big ICT companies. These people have unique experience with and understanding of
technology, complicated projects and implementations. They have been made
redundant in cost cuts or by outsourcing their jobs even though they still have
so much to offer companies and society – and they want to be used.
eSkills.dk offers the services of these high skilled ICT professionals at a
very competitive price and for shorter as well as longer assignments. Contact
