eEmployment: New Forms of Learning & Basic Skills for Advanced, inclusive Lifelong eVET in Internet Generated Occupations

Initial Situation

High unemployment rates in many European and non-European countries – often caused by a low or inadequate training – reinforce the need for specific training and advanced training. Internet Learning is an alternative to existing presence scenarios.

Project Aim

Internet Learning, especially for training in the field of internet-based professions like web shop administrators, website programmers, etc. Preferred target groups of location-independent learning are unemployed – including young people without graduation – and people with physical disabilities, who in many cases have difficulties to find a place of employment.


Under the Leonardo da Vinci program, the European Union has launched the project “eEmployment”. As part of the project, online and offline media with special regard to above mentioned target groups will be designed and implemented.


The project is designed to enable people to learn a profession at home on their own computer in a virtual training center and to pursue their profession on a special online platform. The focus here is on the following areas: eBusiness, Internet Online Services, eContent, website programming and wireless internet applications.
