CITO Project - Virtual Final Conference
According to the European Commission, one in five European adults struggle with reading and understanding text, using maths or digital tools in everyday life. When people have unmet basic skills needs, it can affect their health and wellbeing, their ability to access work and lifelong learning, and their ability to participate fully in family life and society.
Many adults remain unaware of the learning opportunities that are available to them. In Ireland, for example, there are currently around 65,000 adults attending adult literacy classes, however this accounts for only 15% of those people with unmet literacy needs.
The Check-In Take-Off (CITO) project, an Erasmus+ EU Policy Experimentation project, was launched in 2019 to help tackle this issue by developing an online experience that supports adults with unmet literacy, numeracy, and digital needs. Over the last two years, the CITO project has developed and tested the Check In, Take Off web application (CITO Skills Checker). The CITO Skills Checker is an easy-to-use online self-assessment application, which provides a positive experience for adults to explore their learning goals, recognise their existing skills and identify what skills they could develop.
We are holding a Virtual Final Conference on 16 February 2022 to showcase the CITO Skills Checker, our research and our project results! So, save the date and register your interest today!
