OCG cares is a project of the Austrian Computer Society (OCG) in co-operation with other Austrian institutions.
We help people who had to flee from home
- to learn German
- to improve their IT skills and
- to get internationally recognised certificates.
Language skills and IT competences are important to find a job, which is a big step towards social integration
This project is in line with the aim, as it is laid down in the statutes of the OCG: Access to IT for all to be able to become part of the digital society.
OCG Crossover-Course IT & German
The OCG team wishes you all
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
The Crossover-Course IT & Geman will continue in 2017!
There are always some free spots for participants in our courses - please contact us if you are interested and please spread the word :)
Thank you to our voluteer trainers Eva Supanetz, Thomas Baldauf und Reinhard Schuecker who have dedicated their free time to this project for a year now. Welcome to our new trainer on the team Doris Bäs-Fischlmaier, we are happy to have you on board!
We are proud that five course participants have already passed the exams for three ECDL modules - and they will all continue their hard work!
Our project won the ECDL Foundation Best Pracise Award 2016 and a film team was in our office to make a short documentary on the project. Team, trainers and participants are featured in the short movie. In May it will be presented at the ECDL Foundation meeting in Malta and we will post a link to it here!
For our pilot project Crossover-Course IT & German we are always looking for volunteer trainers, so please contact us if you want to become part of the team.
I look forward to hearing from you:
