Digital skills are associated with a range of benefits, both for individuals and the wider economy. These include improved employment prospects and financial capability for adult educators as well. Digital competence appeared for
the first time in the new framework of key competences for lifelong learning (EU, Council Recommendation on Key Competences for Lifelong Learning, 2006 & 2018), as a transversal skill for life, reflecting an understanding of the digital knowledge which goes beyond the strictly technical and procedural notions characteristic of previous European approaches. The DigComp Framework is a fundamental tool that has been developed by the European Union to tackle the challenge of the digital transformation in any area of our lives. It offers a description of the competences that are necessary today to use digital technologies in a confident, critical, collaborative and creative way for carrying out activities and achieving goals related to work, learning, leisure, inclusion and participation in our digital society. The Action Plan on the European Pillar of Social Rights was launched by the European Commission on 4 March 2021.

On the other hand, the skillful use of digital technologies by facilitators makes the labour market more accessible for them.The experiences of partners show that the generations can work together to gain skills, values and knowledge working in the LLL field in a culturally diverse environment, possibly on the international stage.
