Read our goals we have for our clients below.

The initiative aims at:

• To help provide technology access to train, and where applicable certify, millions of people across Europe with information communication technology and other skill-sets required by current or potential employers over the coming 5 years. The initiative aims to focus particularly on young unemployed and older workers that have lower employability chances or are at risk of loosing their jobs because they do not have the right skills. In many respects, there is nothing more important than addressing these issues of societal need.
• To build upon already existing education, training and community programmes, to further extend them and develop synergies across all key stakeholders to deliver higher employ ability opportunities and more positive impact to the end beneficiaries and help make Europe more competitive. Thus creating more revenue and more jobs.
• To jointly raise awareness on the importance of delivering 21st Century Skills for Employability in Europe and to help European Citizens realise their potential. To this end, Alliance members will co-brand the initiative, share visibility as appropriate and leverage this single message for maximum impact.

To enable synergy partnerships and enhanced cooperation between Alliance members, pilot pools or clusters per focus country will be established among partners (with one or two members as Country Rapporteur). Building clusters is important to allow more opportunities. These “Country Clusters” will operate in an open mode and in associative partnership with local technology platforms or other multi-stakeholders whether they be small or large able to take part in the Alliance efforts if they have the know-how and are willing to pool this knowledge. The more knowledge we can bring together individually will make the pool more knowledgeable, and there for more desirable.
The initiative will start rolling out concrete actions with a focus on the following four countries:

• Belgium
• Germany
• Poland
• Portugal
• UK
