ABSTRACT
"A new day for a job" is a joint project of Microsoft Croatia associates and Croatian Society for Informatical Education Promotion, through which computer skills course for the unemployed was organized. The course was conducted from June to September 2007 in five Croatian districts: Bjelovarsko-bilogorska, Koprivničko-križevačka, Ličko-senjska, Vukovarsko-srijemska and Zadarska. The course included 425 attendants chosen by the Croatian Central Employment Office based on the length of registration with the employment board.The courses consisted of 40 lessons during which Windows XP, MS Word, MS Excel, MS Power Point and the Internet explorer programmes were taught. The lessons were held in specialised computer workrooms with groups of 12 to maximum 15 persons. The lecturers were certified ECDL trainers. At the end of the courses the attendants took a test similar to ECDL tests and were thus prepared for taking optional ECDL tests which would be registered in their labour booklets. The Project's goal was to provide the unemployed people of poor financial state with an opportunity to obtain an ECDL certificate registered in their in their booklets without greater expenses. The need for a lifelong education is not a privilege anymore, but a modern labour market requirement. The test results were analysed based on professional preparation, the attendants' age, and the duration of the period they were registered at the employment bureau .
