The purpose of the WOODigital project (2020-22) is to improve the digital skills – Industry 4.0 – of young Europeans (ages 18 to 35) working or interested in working in the wood and furniture sector, through dual (VET – vocational education and training) training methodology.
VET dual training combines activities carried out in both the training center and in companies. In other words, it is a work-based training modality.
WOODigital will first identify the digital skills and competencies needed by young people working or interested in working in the wood and furniture sector. Then a new joint curriculum will be designed in order to meet these needs, based on this a training course will be developed (in 5 languages), and, finally, this course will be integrated in a online platform as an open and free online course. The course will be validated through a pilot course among at least 75 young people, 25 of whom will participate in a 10 days dual training stay in Italy.
