site.btaDigitalization Calls for Review of Adult Training - Employers’ Association Head
In the conditions of accelerated digitalization it is important to rethink the way we treat education and training, particularly the training of adults, Bulgarian Industrial Association (BIA) Management Board Chairman Dobri Mitrev said here on Monday. He was speaking at a roundtable on digital inequality and division on the labour market, hosted by the BIA.
Mitrev recalled that in the education system, there are certain classes in which children and students can obtain knowledge in the field of digitalization, while in the work process that is not so easy. "Therefore, it is very important whether we will have the desire and incentives to continue learning in a new environment, with new technologies, he added.
The roundtable was part of the BIA's Ready for Digital Transformation project, which is implemented in partnership with the Confederation of Independent Trade Unions in Bulgaria and the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy. The project is funded under Operational Programme Human Resources Development.
