It’s a common knowledge that we live in the employee’s market. Or do we? Fast development of digital solutions and automation leaves us with the workforce that lacks basic skills of the future. This is why we decided to join forces with Facebook in delivering its Digital Skills program in Europe to strengthen young people's digital competences.

The program is dedicated to students and young professionals in line with Europe 2020 strategy, as well as New Skills Agenda for Europe. A high number of flagship initiatives in both programs is focused on improving the employment situation of young people. As Geek Girls Carrots was founded on the principle that increasing diversity in the IT will benefit the whole sector, we are happy to bring to our community this prestigious training.

The idea behind the Digital Skills program was to provide young Europeans with skills increasing their employability. The curriculum was developed based on research conducted among employers operating in the region and its main focus is on enabling participants to gain hands-on experience.
