Level Up

During 2022, Level Up, a completely digital education for leaders in the public sector with a focus on health, care and social care throughout Sweden, was carried out. Level Up was aimed at those who wanted to increase both their own and their employees' digital competence.

The project was completed in the spring of 2023. If you are interested in knowing more about the training and its results, please contact us!

The need for competence in digital technology and digitization is increasing sharply in all parts of society. Technological development increases the need for adaptation both for employees and organizations. More and more jobs and industries require a basic ability to handle digital tools, with a more widespread digital competence we also create a basis for increased digitization.

It benefits the individual, companies, organizations and ultimately the whole society through reduced costs and reduced exclusion on the labor market. We believe that a greater breadth of digital competence in the long run also contributes to a sharper edge in digitization and innovation.

In 2022, therefore, 300 people who work as unit or activity managers within public activities, with a focus on health, care and social care, had the opportunity to take part in the educational initiatives offered by the project.

Overall identified areas for competence-enhancing efforts:

The training has been named Level Up and the training efforts were completely digital with a flexible schedule, which made it possible to combine the training with regular work. The program was adapted for both beginners and those with more advanced skills in digitization and innovation. The participants were given the opportunity to develop their own skills, but also create a common approach to ensure sustainable solutions and internal dialogues.

Two overarching skills needs have been identified, to which training efforts have been directed:

  • Digital transformation from a management perspective
    Leaders must constantly evolve and adapt to a changing environment, but above all get their employees to do the same. We create the conditions and provide the necessary tools for the leaders to gain knowledge of practical methods to develop new abilities, eliminate performance gaps and drive the digital transformation in a sustainable and inclusive way.
  • Digital methods, digital technology, working methods as well as innovation and sustainability
    Participants are given both individual tasks and group tasks to work on, based on real needs. It should provide increased knowledge in digital technology and innovation, which can contribute to solving both basic and more complicated needs. It should also provide support in better adapting and developing the business in a world that is constantly changing.​

Why more women than men?

In order to create more equal and inclusive workplaces, women must be prioritized when it comes to skills-enhancing efforts in digitization. Therefore, 200 of the 300 training places in "Your digital mobility" will be offered to women.

Major technological innovations have always been accompanied by extensive changes in the labor market. Surveys show that women will be particularly vulnerable in the future, and that women are at risk of losing out from the rapid development of technology. Occupations that require high school education risk being automated to a nine times higher extent, compared to occupations that require more than three years of university studies. According to Statistics Norway's statistics, 85 percent of the care and social care staff with an education at upper secondary level are precisely women, who are often underrepresented in investments in technology, digitalization and innovation.

Training starts 15 August 2022

Level Up is an educational initiative run by Compare within the framework of the project "Your Digital Mobility" and in collaboration with HIOS (Health Innovation of Sweden).

The project was financed by the European Social Fund.

Training will start on August 15, 2022.
Overall, it is a scope of 63 hours where three hours will be spent during May/June (introduction) and the remaining 60 hours between August and December. On average from August to December, a time consumption of 3h/participant and week is calculated. The starting point is a mix of learning and it is not 63 teacher-led hours that is intended. Within the 63 hours are theory as well as group discussions/reflection and implementation of their learning in their activities. In addition to the mandatory hours, participants have the opportunity to attend several in-depth modules if they wish.

The only cost to participate is the time that the employers set aside for the participants' participation in the training.
