The report analyses participation results and the average scores obtained by participants between 2012 and 2015. In addition, for 2015 it provides an in-depth analysis with the socio-demographic variables. Following the analysis, specific calls-to-action and policy recommendations are proposed as well.
Policy recommendations are:
- to raise awareness among female youngsters and employers about the fact that girls and women are well prepared to work in jobs requiring digital competence
- specific digital competence education and training should be already introduced at school age and aligned with labour market needs
- to reinforce digital skills education and training for employability at high school, vocational training, university and non-formal training for youngsters (ICT training centres, telecentres, etc.).
