BETES is a project inspired by the lack of soft and most importantly digital skills, which due to the rapid digital advancement, are considered of the utmost importance by the industry. The industrial sector comprises various subsectors that have different needs or demands. Digital skills and technologies include: Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and robotics, IT skills, and data analytics, meanwhile soft skills include: communication, teamwork, problem-solving, critical thinking, etc.
Professional organizations and experts (ECECT, SkillsZone, and Digital Idea) that are interested in educating, consulting, and informing people on the aforementioned topics, came together in an effort to educate them, especially those who are not traditionally targeted by projects funded by European bodies. A typical trainee could be an unemployed, underemployed individual and generally, an individual that wants to be retrained, however, is required to have basic internet and IT skills.
Various seminars and events will utilize the material developed by the consortium, to educate and keep the people updated, since it will be available through an online platform and different social media accounts. Most importantly the trainees will be motivated to seek further education and training, which in the future can ensure more career opportunities and higher-paying jobs.
