Empowering workers with the skills they need for tomorrow.
FutureFit was a major training and research project led by Nesta and supported by Google.org, focused on creating an effective adult learning system to help tackle inequality and social exclusion. In partnership with 46 of Europe’s largest unions, leading researchers, employers and adult learning experts, FutureFit upskilled over 1,100 workers and conducted a large evaluation about what works, so that solutions can be scaled. The majority of the individuals that took part in FutureFit had no-low digital skills, despite working in highly automatable industries and jobs. Almost 90 per cent gained better digital skills, using the skills and knowledge they acquired in their jobs and elsewhere.
