ITONBOARD: Build your future
Find out if your dream job is in the IT industry. Without any costs and without prejudices! ITONBOARD is a career orientation program for everyone, whenever and wherever you want.
We closed the year 2022 with the official Go Live event dedicated to our career guidance program ITONBOARD. The program contains valuable educational products for young people to provide them an overview of the professional opportunities in the IT sector and especially in open-source web development. The different educational tools are available for free and aim to offer students everything from a fun career orientation experience to an interest test, in-depth e-learning, and blended remote internships all under one roof.
WHAT MAKES ITONBOARD SO IMPORTANT?
Europe is affected by both youth unemployment and a shortage of skilled workers. According to the European Commission, good education and a smooth career entry are key factors to stop this critical situation.
We have made it our business to accompany young people throughout Europe step-by-step and to make them aware so that they get to know and learn to love both the IT industry and the opportunities offered by open-source technologies. At ITONBOARD, students between the ages 12 and 16, teachers and IT companies will find everything for IT career orientation in one place – and completely for free:
- IT career interest tests,
- In-depth e-learning courses for students,
- An escape game,
- A guideline to conduct an ITONBOARD project week in schools for teachers,
- A guideline to perform »blended remote internships« for companies ,
- An internship exchange portal.

What is this project about?
This project aims to advance digitalization in the field of vocational training. The project is specifically focused on the changes brought about by the pandemic in the three following areas: technology, soft skills and administrative organization. Digital competences are one of the key factors, which are particularly important for a successful integration into the labor market. Thus, we intend to support citizens in their personal and professional development.
