BeCode & ESF-Vlaanderen have run 4 web-development classes in the state-of-the-art T2 Campus, training more than 80 unemployed Limburgers to the digital skills of today and tomorrow. 

Along with front- & back-end development skills, the programme had a special focus on soft skills, in order to help the jobseekers develop the best approach to working and learning in a tech environment.

The target audience of the project mainly consists of people who are remote from employment due to a lack of degrees or diplomas (school drop-outs), a lack of professional experience, a lack of soft and tech skills or a long-term unemployment period.
