A new suite of European Digital Media qualifications, using the European Credit Transfer System & funded by Erasmus+.
Digiblox allows the transfer of course modules studied between any participating and accredited EU VET centers, giving learners entirely new options to travel and study in other European countries. And have their course credits count towards a substantial, final vocational qualification while they do.
LATEST UPDATE Mission Accomplished! The Digiblox Project is complete. The Digiblox (EfDM) project was started in 2018 to address the digital skills gap of young people and strengthen their abilities as they move into the new world of work. Two and a half years later the Digiblox qualification is available across Europe in a variety of colleges and universities. Read the final project update here.
PREVIOUS UPDATES * The DigiBlox Piloting phase has completed! Our first round of newly qualified, digitally skilled DigiBlox alumni report back to the project partners on their experiences at our most recent Transnational Meetup – still happening virtually due to the on-going Covid-19 travel restrictions. Read about their experiences here.
* The official DigiBlox virtual launch session has happened! On Thursday 4th June our panel of Eva Pascoe, Geogina Heffernan and Dr Richard Barbrook were joined by media theorist, documentarian & author Doughlas Rushkof, host of the Team Human podcast to take a fresh view on Digital Education. Discussion with the panel followed a review of the course and a feature presentations on ‘Fake News’ and remote working. Watch the recording & read the event review here.
* We know how important it is for our tutors to stay up to date on the latest syllabus and digital media trends. That’s one of the reasons why Capacity London is currently hosting long-term teaching and training assignments for the new team of Digiblox Digital Tutors in the UK. This two-month assignment is to empower staff to broaden their experience of Digital Media VET provision and, in particular, work alongside experts who have extensive experience of delivering Digital Media VET courses, to inspirestudents to fulfill their highest potential. Our Digiblox tutors will also study course curricula and materials and work remotely with Capacity London staff to develop their knowledge of the course content and delivery structure. Additionally, there is a focus on the provision of aftercare support for learners in areas such as careers counselling and jobsearch assistance.
