This study investigates the influence of the 2 year Erasmus+ project called “Youth, multilingualism and work perspectives in Europe” on youngsters in the area of digital competence. It took place in 2015-2017 and was provided by 6 countries. During the project the set of questionnaires were provided and filled by 124 respondents, 28 teachers and 96 students. The project implemented a wide array of applications, programmes and gave a chance to use some of the devices. Considering the fact that 47% of EU population has insufficient digital skills and observing the growing deficit of ICT professional skills, there is real approach for education to fulfill the market demand and supply students generations with ICT skills. In the project the objective of enrichment digital competence was reached but the quality level depended on personal engagement, the diverse number of products which were done with the use of diverse sort of apps. But considering the total level of tasks fulfilment developing digital competence is definitely satisfactory. Additional information about the implementation of ICT into the international meetings are Europass Mobility documents. Summarizing the project brought the following proposed assumptions. Firstly, teachers and students made a significant progress in digital competence in the project. Secondly, all participants consider digital competence as a very useful and demanding skill on the labour market, education and life. The findings are enriched with recommendation for institutions responsible for education, because their policies can play a major role to support all actions needed to bring about a digital education system and increase the number of digitally supportive schools and digitally confident and supportive teachers and students. One of them is the persistence of implementation of ICT in the context of projects and further teaching and learning.
