Skype for Senior Citizens

As part of GOW13, Third Age University students attended a Skype for Senior Citizens seminar. Retirees who have already completed the Tvoy Kurs training and received their Digital Literacy Certificates, continue their digital journey under the guidance of the University’s Resource Center team, not only getting more and more interested in opportunities, provided by modern technologies, but also taking more and more initiative in trying to get the hang of them.

European Campaign in Russian Siberia

The Tvoy Kurs: IT for Youth Center of A.S. Pushkin library in Tomsk held a vocational guidance seminar for students from public schools # 2 and 56, with a focus on IT-related jobs. Multimedia presentations introduced the students to the current situation on the IT labor market. The students learned that the most popular careers are in programming and software development; that specialists that are most in demand are PHP programmers and web-developers; and that in IT there are two résumés for every vacancy, while over the last year the number of jobs for young IT specialists had increased by 60%. They also learned about the job of a software evangelist, virtually unknown in Russia but very popular in America and Europe.

In conclusion, the students were offered an opportunity to take a few online tests, including a career aptitude test, the Guess the Job test from My Education website, and the Skillage test, that helps young people to see whether they know how to use ICT skills in work situations. The students appreciated the training, saying that it was informative, helpful and very relevant. For our Tvoy Kurs Center it was the first career guidance event for high school students, and we are very happy that it went so well.
