What is digital sovereignty of VET Teachers and how will the preparation of a Competence Framework support the upskilling of VET Teachers / Trainers?
With the creation of the DISCVET competence framework for digital sovereignty there are multiple benefits, being a structured set of competencies, skills, and knowledge that are required to perform specific tasks or roles by VET Teachers and Trainers effectively. Indeed, by creating a competence framework for digital sovereignty, individuals and organizations can better understand and develop the skills and knowledge they need to protect themselves and their digital assets.
There are several benefits from the creation of a competence framework for digital sovereignty:
- Identification of existing skills gaps: The DISCVET competence framework can help individuals and organizations identify skills gaps in their digital sovereignty knowledge and skills. By evaluating their skills against the framework, they can determine which areas they need to improve upon to increase their digital sovereignty.
- Standardization of trainings: The DISCVET competence framework can help standardize training programs and materials for digital sovereignty. This can ensure that all individuals and organizations are learning the same skills and knowledge, which can improve overall competency and digital sovereignty across the board.
