Investing in tomorrow's skills: ADEM launches the "FutureSkills" initiative

The Covid-19 pandemic has profoundly affected the world of work by accelerating automation and digital transformation. More than ever, professions are evolving and many sectors and jobs require new skills.

“With the FutureSkills path, ADEM is investing in the development of tomorrow’s skills, with the aim of better matching the profiles available with those sought after on the job market, ” explains Isabelle Schlesser, Director of ADEM.

FutureSkills enables candidates selected by ADEM to benefit from training aimed at strengthening their skills and acquiring new ones, as well as from a practical internship enabling them to remain active during the period of unemployment.

    This project is aimed at compensated jobseekers with a level of education corresponding to at least a 2nd year of secondary education, fluent in French and with a basic knowledge of Luxembourgish. Candidates must demonstrate their motivation to learn new skills and be able to follow an autonomous distance learning course (e-learning).

    The training component, carried out in partnership with the House of Training of the Chamber of Commerce and the Luxembourg Life Long Learning Center of the Chamber of Employees, lasts three months and focuses on the development of transversal skills:

    •     soft skills
    •     digital skills
    •     project management skills
    •     training in office automation or data&coding
