Event Narrative

The event will explore the models and opportunities that derive from implementing Individual Learning Accounts (ILAs) in the 2020s across Europe. In the digital job market ILAs could be highly relevant to make training rights “portable” from one job or employment status to another. And they could have a huge impact on the digital skills gaps countries are facing, supporting competitiveness and economic development.

Speakers and panellists will discuss benefits and implications for national governments, the education sector, industry and employers, and society as a whole. ALL DIGITAL is currently delivering ‘Digital Skillshift’, a project supported by J.P. Morgan which includes comparable training models with and without the use of ILA type funding.  Lessons from current and previous ILA case studies will also be discussed, as well as exploring possible models for testing.
