Skills Matching and Real-Time (LMI/SMART LMI)

The project’s aim was to develop an innovative digital solution that allows both career practitioners and their clients easily understand emerging job trends, changes to the labor market, and how best to manage their skills to meet this. The e-tool enriched 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 was 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 also acted as a feasibility study which provided an evidence base for policymakers across Europe, as they look to further develop open data, eGovernment and labor market policy etc.

The target groups of the project were the following: employed or unemployed people, marginalized young people (NEET, migrant backgrounds etc.) and low-skilled adults.

ANCE contributed to the project through the following activities:

  • Desk Research
  • Quality Assurance
  • Piloting and Impact Assessment
  • Dissemination and Exploitation
  • Tool Assessment

The project was 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 was 3 years (2017 – 2020) and was leaded by Aspire Igen Ltd
