Jobseekers in Luxembourg will have free access to online training courses thanks to a new, one-year partnership between Luxembourg employment agency Adem and OpenClassrooms.
The online training start-up will enable people registered with Adem to choose from around 300 online courses, according to our sister magazine Paperjam.
Courses range from the beginner’s introduction to digital tools to complex aspects of marketing, design and management.
The courses are offered in modules which require a commitment of between five and 20 hours and end with an exam. They can be accessed any time of day, from a computer or smartphone. The courses are currently offered in French, English and Spanish.
OpenClassrooms was founded four years ago in Paris. Its services are used by three million people every month, and each year the start-up validates 100,000 certifications.
The agreement follows similar partnerships between Adem and the House of Training, the Luxembourg Lifelong Learning Center and the Fit4Coding program.
Take-up of the courses by jobseekers in Luxembourg will be closely monitored by Adem over the coming 12 months to determine whether the partnership will be extended.
