Shift EDU

ICT integration in all spheres of activity and digital skills are important factors for the development of any country in the information age.

The dynamic pace of changes, including on the job market (the expansion of the ICT sector; the growing demand for engineers and data analysts, for digital skills – a key competence for the 21st century) and in the technological landscape (IoT, AI, big data ), draw new expectations for educational systems around the world. The Republic of Moldova faces a pronounced gap between the required ICT skills and the low level of digital literacy. This disadvantage excludes many citizens from an ICT-based society and economy, reducing their access to public and social services, which can be requested more and more online, and Moldova’s possibility to participate in the global digital economy.

Despite some progress at the level of policies, investments in infrastructure and curriculum development for ICT specialties, the results regarding the use of technologies to improve management and learning processes in schools are unsatisfactory. Although most educational institutions are equipped with information and communication technologies, a good part of them are outdated and less used in teaching and learning.

In this context, the project aims to increase the number of young men and women from vocational technical education who possess relevant skills for the job market.


Teaching and managerial staff from 6 professional technical education institutions, including the Center of Excellence in Informatics and Information Technologies (CEITI)


Objective 1: Development of digital skills of managerial staff.

Objective 2: Teaching staff and foremen in technical vocational education institutions possess better digital skills.

Objective 3: The creation of digital contents for jobs and specialties in professional technical education and the use of educational resources in the teaching-learning-evaluation process.

Objective 4: Equipping and modernizing study spaces with the use of ICT, taking into account student-centered learning.


The collaboration is valid until December 31, 2021.




The project will be implemented over a period of 3 years and expects to achieve the following results:

Result 1: Digital competences are recognized and continuously supported by the technical professional education institutions at a strategic level, as part of the training process and the organizational culture.

Activities: Improving the skills of managerial staff from 6 pilot institutions through trainings, study visits, etc.; providing support in the ICT infrastructure modernization process, development and maintenance of information systems, equipping and adapting spaces.

Result 2: Teaching staff and masters in technical vocational education institutions possess better digital skills.

Activities: The inclusion in the training offer of the pilot institutions and the implementation of the ToT programs, the mentoring program, as well as the digital skills training program; organizing a study visit.

Result 3: Digital content for jobs and specialties in technical vocational education is improved, and open educational resources are used more often in teaching, learning and assessment.

Activities: Elaboration of guides for the implementation of education programs from the perspective of ICT integration; development of digital content for 3 jobs and specialties; carrying out courses on the development of digital content and copyright; organizing a campaign to promote open educational resources.

Result 4: The study spaces are equipped with what is necessary to carry out the educational process with the use of ICT, as well as student-centered learning.
