DISCOVER launches its ambitious bid to promote digital skills in Tunisia

CARDET is excited to announce the launch of its new initiative, DISCOVER, aimed at driving forward skills and competences essential for instilling digital readiness across Tunisia. With a strong focus on Vocational Education and Training (VET), the project aspires to empower Tunisian VET centers to craft and execute a sustainable, long-term digital strategy through a collaborative, multi-stakeholder approach.

By leveraging CARDET’s long-standing expertise in capacity-building programs, training, and policy support, the project aims to equip the VET centers with digital competencies and enhance Tunisia’s responsiveness to the dynamic demands of the labour market, fostering skill development and leveraging sustainable economic growth nationwide.

The first transnational meeting held in Nicosia between 17-18th of April, marked a significant milestone in defining the grounds of this future cooperation and paving the most efficient way of bringing the strengths and competencies of individual partners into the mix. Central to the discussions with Greek and Tunisian partners were the insights deduced from the consortium’s research aimed to identify both the opportunities and challenges in fostering digital readiness in Tunisia.

One of the key outcomes of the meeting was the recognition of the pressing necessity for a tailored Digital Learning Strategy Toolkit and Ecosystem Mapping, custom-designed to empower VET providers in Tunisia. By providing tailored tools and materials, the initiative hopes to ensure that the project addresses the unique set of challenges and abandons the one-size-fits-all approach.

Throughout this meeting, the consortium, once again, demonstrated its unwavering commitment to advancing the DISCOVER project’s objectives, underlining a shared determination to ensure its impact. With a now-defined course of action, we are all anticipating the upcoming tangible contributions of this initiative in reshaping the digital landscape of vocational education, not only within Tunisia but also on a broader global scale.
