In June 2019, all the European members of the Simplon Network Factoria F5 (Spain), Simplon (France), Simplon Romania (Romania), Becode(Belgium) and Réalise (Switzerland) decided to join their forces to launch a European Board to maximize their social impact in Europe.
The European Board
Our European projects
EUnited We Code
Is an Eramus+ project led by Simplon.co, Factoria F5 (Spain),
Etic (Romania), PLS and BeCode (Belgium) from September 2018 to November 2019.
The goal of this project is to share training experiences on Simplon.co’s pedagogy (best practices, challenges, ideas), build shared training resources and organize feedbacks between trainers from the Simplon’s social coding schools network.
Digital Skills Shift
The Digital Skillshift project is an All Digital network project funded by the JP Morgan Foundation.
Its objective is to carry out a proof of concept in three countries (France, Germany, Italy) by training 300 jobseekers,
100 per country, with low qualifications (less than 12 months unemployed) from 18 to 40 years old in "digital blocks" corresponding to the digital transformation of their professions, in order to reintegrate them into employment.
The aim is that this pilot project can then be extended.
Simplon is also participating in a project called NewTalents4EU, financed by AMIF (Asylum, Migration, and Integration Fund).
This project aims to empower all refugees to “programme” their future, with the goal of facilitating a more durable form of integration. It will offer market-focused and validated training schemes in coding and programming professions, with a focus on business networking.
These training schemes will be implemented by non-profit organizations and social enterprises across 4 EU countries, creating a skilled workforce of 80 refugees in the IT sector.
There are currently 5 European actors, including 4 training centers: Code Your Future (UK), CO&SO (Italy), MigHelp (Hungary) and Diesis (Belgium)
