New Technologies are evolving and a word „CLOUD“ has become familiar to almost everyone.
Demand for IT specialists is growing fast. One way of coping with the need is to work hand-in-hand with multiple stakeholders – collaborate to identify the skills and competencies expected by the labour market; Create and update curricula to provide companies with competitive workforce; Provide educational institutions with suitable frameworks that would enable all counterparts to work on a common goal.
Lifelong learning and work-based learning are increasingly gaining attention by all sectors. The applicability of work-based learning models as such are highly valued and recommended. Based on the piloting results of an international cooperation project – DIHUB, we would like to introduce our findings and an international HUB model for setting up cooperation between multiple parties. But this is just a humble start in developing future scenarios to meet the forecasted need for IT professionals.
