Members of Telecentre-Europe and KC4All partners attended an employability-dedicated workshop where the employment toolkit lifted up the interest of a number of telecentre networks in Asia, Africa and South America. Telecentre-Europe is exploring with these networks the possibility to have the toolkit replicated in more languages and geographical areas.
