EucA and EDEN invite you to join the eLene4work Network

Learning to learn for new digital soft skills for employability. Soft skills such as communication, teamwork, creativity and entrepreneurship are more and more in demand in today’s labour market, but how can we measure these skills? How can students and young workers demonstrate these skills on a CV or e-Portfolio? What are today’s and tomorrow’s employers really looking for? The eLene4work European project is tackling the definition of these soft skills, including digital soft skills, and proposes a series of actions and practical tools to help young talents better understand the expectations of employers, to assess their own level of competency and to further develop these skills through open education initiatives such as MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and OERs (Open Educational Resources).
