For the knowledge demonstrated in the field of information technology and use of personal computers as well as the tests passed in seven computer courses, 55 education participants received ECDL certificates i.e. European Computer Driving Licence. This is the most widespread international certificate for the computer users, recognised in 160 countries with over 6 million users. The Union of ICT societies Serbia - JISA enabled the ECDL indexes for all participants to be obtained at favourable prices.
In addition to computer courses the beneficiaries attended English language courses and passed the final exam. The program included also social skills courses that are not related to a specific job, but are in the bases of successful performance of any job. They are used in all work environments and can easily be transferred from one field of one`s work into another. Those are psychosocial and interpersonal skills within which the participants learned how to express their needs respecting at the same time the needs of others, to recognise their individual potentials and aptitudes for certain professions and work environments as well as to present themselves effectively, for example at a job interview.
" This education program has meant a lot to me, now I use computer for my studies every day, I type and arrange my seminar papers by myself, I create Power Point presentations. I am sure that these certificates will mean a lot to me also later when I start searching for a job", said Danijela T., a twenty-one-year-old student, refugee from Knin.
