Facilitating the access to the ICT labour market of third country nationals by developing further their existing skillset

The ICT4TCN project aims at taking advantage of the great potential that lies within one of the most promising EU industries, namely the ICT sector, so as to facilitate the access of Third Country Nationals (TCNs) to the EU labour market, by capitalising on and further developing their existing basic IT skillset, based on actual market needs.

Within this context, the proposed project is expected to achieve:

  • A better contact between ICT companies and TCNs with some IT skills;
  • A higher employment rate of TCNs in the ICT market;
  • A pool of trained and skilled potential employees/ TCNs;
  • The introduction of an efficient methodology for assessing IT-related prior background.

During its 24-month lifetime, ICT4TCN will directly and indirectly positively impact:

At least


Third-Country Nationals

At least


adult educators /tutors

At least


trained TCNs (3-month courses)
