If there is one thing COVID-19 has hammered home, it’s that digital learning is the future. This highly topical crisis has meant that all of us have gained concrete experiences, and no one really believes we are returning to the “old days”.

Therefore, COK, the Centre for Public Competence Development, must now, in collaboration with Cadpeople, develop digital learning for the Danish National Board of Health and Welfare. Specifically, the training is meant to equip caseworkers to become better at guiding vulnerable citizens back to work. Not when they have recovered, but as part of their recovery.

– “We know, today, that the path for many mentally vulnerable people to the labour market is not exclusively about “getting better” first, but about getting to work at one level or another. And thereby also getting better through an enterprising and meaningful everyday life – in which there is also a sense of fellowship and meaning to participating in something. In this way, participation in the labour market becomes a part of getting better, and not something that must only take place afterwards,” says Bjarne Richter Bjelke, Chief Consultant, COK.

It is thus about translating knowledge about processes and opportunities into a digital learning process that does not try to sell old wine in new bottles, but that didactically rethinks the learning virtually.

– “We have worked with digital learning for two decades. However, the collaboration with COK brings a new type of learning to the table that requires a very different and more processual approach. We look forward to exploring this. Needless to say, we are very proud that, together, we have won the tender for the task,” says Cadpeople CEO Claus R. Møller.
