Introducing the DigiAdvance Project: Bridging the Skills Gap
In today’s digital era, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) play a vital role in the global economy. However, many SMEs face a significant challenge: a lack of digital skills among their owners, managers, and employees. To address this issue head-on, the DigiAdvance project was born. Our mission is to equip SMEs with the necessary digital skills to thrive in the modern business landscape.
We believe that empowering SMEs with digital literacy is essential to drive innovation, improve productivity, and unlock new growth opportunities. Through low-cost, demand-driven, and tailored training programmes, DigiAdvance offers micro-credentials in key digital technologies, providing SMEs with the tools they need to succeed in today’s fast-paced digital world.
