Project Description

skillsmatch eurecat

The goal of SkillsMatch is to develop assessment and learning technology in order to help users to adapt their skill assets to the demanded labour market skills. It recommends actions to users in order to bridge the gap between their skills profile and the one recommended for their target jobs.

The solution will integrate and improve the development of Non-Cognitive Skills (NC), personality traits or motivations. During the project, partners will create a technological platform for assessing and evaluating such skills, as well as for recommending training opportunities for bridging the gap between their skills profile and the one recommended for their target jobs.

SkillsMatch platform will offer users a self-assessment NC tool showing strong and week points in relation to what is recommended for specific occupations, a personalized training itinerary including Open Education Resources (OER) and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and a portfolio linked to open badges which will provide recognition of the new skills.

The project, which started in June 2018, has a 24 months’ duration and will implement the system in Sweden, Spain, Ireland and Italy, the countries of the project partners.
