Work is the essential element of social and economic cohesion. But 23% of young people aged 18 to 25 are unemployed in the Brussels-Capital Region and their curriculum is not very adapted to today’s world. 70% of job seekers don’t have a high school diploma. In addition, 40% of unemployed people have never used the Internet.
Companies are evolving and don’t find the right profiles or are looking for them abroad. By 2020, the number of jobs available in the digital ecosystem is estimated at 300,000 according to a BCG study.
Kersel manages a movement to create jobs in Belgium and to succeed in the digital transformation of people between 18 and 30 years old. Paris has school 42, Lyon has 101, Brussels will have school 19. From the first half of 2018, 150 students will join our coding school, inspired and supported by Xavier Niel, the co-founder of 42.
This project is carried by Ian Gallienne (GBL) and John-Alexander Bogaerts (B19).
