Digi-Path is an Erasmus Plus Adult Education project seeking to promote the integration of migrants at local level through digital skills.
The Digi-Path project addresses integration issues of Third-Country Nationals (TCNs) in European countries
Digi-Path has a primary objective to foster the successful inclusion and participation of TCNs and their family members in the host EU country’s civic and social life providing equal access to information and services that will increase their well-being in the hosting societies.
This is going to be achieved through objectives that include:
- Increasing the capacity of Public Administration Authorities and Experts at local level in the participating countries to enable and facilitate the access of TCNs to a number of civic and other services (access to the labour market and relevant rights, professional guidance, family planning, available benefits, social insurance, registry etc) in the host countries; and
- Improving the availability, awareness and participation of TCNs in civic activities in their host communities;
Digi-Path will create four outputs
Output 1: Identification of online local public (and private) TCN friendly services
Output 2: Development of a user-friendly game fostering access to local services
Output 3: Development of a Capacity-building Programme for Municipal Professionals and Adult TCN trainers
Output 4: Delivery of social inclusion support services to TCN through the use of the Digi-Path Outputs
The project will identify and catalogue online local public (and private) TCN friendly services (output 1) and become accessible through a user-friendly social integration game (output 2), that will be a corner-stone in the facilitation of the social inclusion of TCNs, fostering their access to the labour market and relevant rights, professional guidance, family planning, available benefits, social insurance, registry etc.
The Digi-Path social inclusion approach is further facilitated by increasing the competences of the Local / Municipal Public Administration staff, in terms of more efficient communication with and support for Third Country Nationals. This will be achieved through the Development of a Capacity-building Training Programme for Municipal Professionals and Adult TCN trainers (output 3) accompanied by a Joint Staff Training Event (C1), where selected participants – Local Authorities Employees that are in touch with TCNs, will be trained to use the materials developed and the effective use of the social inclusion game. Output 4 provides a standardise process for the delivery of support to TCNs using outputs 2 and 3, with the support being provided by municipality staff and trainers that have attended C1 (Joint Staff Training).View Project
