The Digital Age has affected the workforce in several ways. It has created a situation in which workers have to be adapted to the digital working environments. 56% of the adult population have no ICT skills or have only the skills necessary to fulfil the simplest set of tasks in a technology-rich environment (OECD Skills for a Digital World 2016). During their training in schools, digital tools were not developed therefore they do not possess any digital skills that are required in this age which results in not being able to sustain their jobs in digital age. The Level Up project aims at developing the digital skills of adults with low-skilled occupations in order to adapt them to the digital age. These skills are in core in all working environments and required to operate many tools used in technical and industrial occupations. By gaining the digital skills required for digital age, adults with low-skilled occupations will be able to: increase their employability, work more efficiently and productive, find ways of improving their core-skills using ICT, find jobs with better conditions. Another aim of the project is to encourage adult training centres to offer digital skills courses for target group. This way adults who do not have opportunity to reach or use internet will be reached. To do this, a handbook with extra activities, innovative teaching methods and learning outcomes will be prepared.
