Digital skills for
job search

Our project Intro - Internet Research Communication aims to support people with a refugee biography and migrants in finding information on the labour market online and to teach them the basic digital skills required for this.
Many people who come to live in Germany face a professional reorientation, need to train for new jobs without prior knowledge or need additional qualifications to enter the German labour market. The job search and orientation process is difficult and requires online research, language skills and a certain level of knowledge about the German labour market. Digital skills are a fundamental requirement to successfully master this challenge.

In the Intro project, we teach the specific digital skills needed to use the internet for labour market research, to inform about jobs, internships or further education and training and to communicate in the digital space. To develop these basis digital skills, we use a new teaching concept that combines synchronous (live online sessions) and asynchronous (via an online learning platform) teaching methods.

The current offering is targeted at people living in Hamburg.

Project Completion Summary - Intro Courses funded by DigiCo

From June 2022 to August 2023, Grenzenlos Digital e.V. conducted a series of three online Intro courses. These courses provided  a total of 51 individuals with essential digital skills, preparing them for success in today’s digital landscape. Participants achieved an impressive average improvement of 24% in digital competencies, specifically in areas 1 and 2 of the European Digital Competence Framework for Citizens. The courses received unanimous approval, with 100% of attendees rating them as useful for both professional and personal development.

Notably, the online course structure led to a significantly higher female participation rate than expected (62%.). In contrast to traditional in-person events, the virtual setting provided a safe space that encouraged active engagement. Comprehensive support both before and during the course, coupled with options for synchronous and asynchronous learning, ensured that an outstanding 85% of participants successfully completed the  course.
