The Career Skills project has the ambitious goal of becoming a Europe-wide online one-stop-shop addressing the needs of career guidance practitioners, policy actors and users:
- Citizens from all ages – young people and adults who seek support for career transitions; low-skilled and over-qualified who face challenges in matching to the labour market; unemployed, NEETs, adults /employees who are planning a career transition or are threatened to lose their jobs, older workers, who need to up-skill and develop new competences to remain competitive. The project will help them to improve their skills and find suitable careers in a dynamically changing world.
- Career guidance practitioners and other intermediary bodies offering career support will receive ready to use training tools and resources, as well as multi-functional platform, where they can present their services, achievements and good practices and get in contact with clients who need support in developing their career management skills.
- Stakeholders –policy makers, experts, employers, educational institutions will benefit from the long-term outcomes of the projects: enhanced access to services, better understanding of the career management skills in the society, improved provision and uptake of CMS training, and better match betwen training and labour market demands.
The 3-year Forward Looking Cooperation Project is co-funded with the support of the European Commission and implemented by a multiactor partnership involving 6 organizations across Europe.
- In 2020 the partners will elaborate the Career Skills Catalogue and conduct research to collect feedback and resources. The Career Skills platform and the Career Service Map will be launched. The results will be presented in seminars for policy actors.
- In 2021 we will develop the Career Management Skills MOOC, produce a promotional video and organize trainings of trainers in all partner countries to disseminate the platform and methodology for career skills development.
- In 2022 the consortium will conduct promotional campaigns assess the project impact and present the findings and outcomes during the final events.
