Digital Learning Hub and the Take Off Show!
Want to up-skill to become tech ready for the job market? DLH is the place. Plus, applications for the Take Off Show are open for youngsters!
The Digital Learning Hub is about to celebrate its first birthday on 16 May. Dr. Serge Linkels, manager of DHL, talks to us about the ideas behind its creation. Working closely with ADEM and industry, they found out that about one quarter of the jobs on the market today require IT skills and currently people resident in Luxembourg cannot fill those posts. And so it was crucial to train and re-train those in the job market, or wanting to enter the job market.
Jenna Pütz, Communication Officer at DHL, talks about the various courses on offer, from beginner courses to high-end coding. They work with terrific partners to offer training in coding, cybersecurity, blockchain, design thinking and have just added AI / Chat GPT. They have a small team which works with AI and analyses the jobs across the EU and those which are most sought after in Luxembourg. Training requirements are matched to the needs of the job market.
DHL is based in Esch, Belval and the courses are open to anyone over 18. For students or those in the public sector, training is free. Many companies also cover the costs. For others, the cost is kept low.
