The digital transformation is changing society and the economy. Digital technologies have long since made their way into numerous workplaces. In order to keep pace with the digital transformation, employees increasingly need well-developed digital skills. At the same time, employees with weak digital skills and those in semi-skilled jobs are at risk of missing the boat. This is where the CGC - DigiTrans project comes in: The aim of the project is to develop an innovative consulting method, the "CGC Roundabouts for Digital Transformation", which enables: identify the needs of employers and customers to develop offers for digital qualification in a more fitting way to select suitable qualification offers together with those seeking advice and to accompany the further training. The basis for this is both the knowledge and skills of the counseling practitioners in the context of digitization and their ability to counsel in multi-actor networks. The consulting method is being developed with the involvement of practitioners from the fields of consulting, continuing education, and company practice or personnel development. It supports consulting practitioners in harmonizing the digital competence needs of employees, companies and providers of continuing vocational training. Accompanying the method, a method manual, a curriculum and seminars are being developed. The curriculum will be tested in the context of academic training and further education of guidance practitioners. The inclusion of local networks of practitioners from the fields of counseling, continuing education and human resources in Germany, Italy, Austria and the Netherlands will ensure a high level of practical relevance and openness for adaptation in the national counseling context.
