Several online and blended resources already available were identified, a selection of which will serve as a basis for the development the Key Competences Toolkit. National context analysis reports will be made available on demand. Please contact Laia Fauro Gual.

- Toolkit for end users It consists of three steps, each with two sections combining e-learning sessions, additional learning materials, online resources and workshops. Online resources have been careful selected to offer useful information for jobseekers with low ICT skills.
The first step, ‘Choose it’, helps end users to choose a profession based upon their skills and interests. Two workshops are available in this section, the first is intended to improve their own skills assessment, and the second is designed to improve their ability to search the web.
The second step, ‘Get ready for it’, offers end users online resources and three workshops to help them apply for a job. This step also improves their ability to use word processing and spreadsheet software.
The third and last step, “Go for it”, helps end users to promote themselves using web 2.0 tools and presentation software.
