“CODE-N-SOCIAL: Promoting Social Inclusion through Coding and ICT skills” is a European cooperation project aimed at providing access to quality IT learning and helping people at risk of poverty and social exclusion (AROPE) to get out of the education-poverty trap where they are kept due to prejudices and low quality IT education. CODE-N-SOCIAL will give guided introduction to coding to those persons AROPE who need support, encouragement to fight prejudices and make a first step in entering the IT world, or even recognizing that their passive IT-user skills can be transferred into valuable competencies for the labour market.

The project aims to develop:

  • Online learning platform as a competence and confidence-building open educational resource for introducing persons at risk of social exclusion to the world of coding
  • Curriculum for familiarizing the target group with coding/programming and other basic technological skills
  • Capacity building course divided into e-learning modules in line with the learning units described in the Curriculum
  • Guidelines presenting ICT competence and confidence development as an empowerment tool for people at risk of social exclusion
  • Video gallery with stories and role model presentations to inspire and overcome the ICT gap for the socially excluded
