The project aims to develop an innovative digital solution which allows both careers practitioners and their clients easily understand emerging job trends, changes to the labour market, and how best to manage their skills to meet this. The e-tool will enrich the work of practitioners by looking for cutting-edge ways to exploit open-data and new technology (particularly in reference to LMSI and European tools) to add functionality to traditional skills self-assessments. This will be presented in a digital app to be used by clients, both independently and through supported guidance. To maximize impact, the app will be complemented by a series of CPD resources for practitioners, to help up-skill them on the potential of LMSI and digital guidance. The project’s research will also act as a feasibility study which will provide an evidence base for policymakers across Europe, as they look to further develop open data, eGovernment and labour market policy etc.
The target groups of the project are the following: employed or unemployed people, marginalised young people (NEET, migrant backgrounds etc.) and low-skilled adults.
ANCE will contribute to the project through the following activities:
- Desk Research
- Quality Assurance
- Piloting and Impact Assessment
- Dissemination and Exploitation
- Tool Assessment
The project is co-funded by Erasmus+ programme, Forward-Looking Cooperation Projects 2017, and addresses priority 3 (Promoting innovative technology in the field of providing career guidance). Its duration is 3 years (2017 – 2020) and is leaded by Aspire Igen Ltd
