e-Skills Match (www.eskillsmatch.eu) is an EU co-funded project aiming to develop and demonstrate a European-wide learning system that will dynamically adapt to the changes that are occurring to current job market classifications and will support the user to identify any potential lack of necessary e-Skills and digital competences, while it will offer him the tools and methods to gain (re-) training in order to become more competitive and access the desirable jobs within ICT or non-ICT sectors.
Towards these objectives, the project will design, develop and deploy the e-Skills Match platform, a web-based multilingual platform which will offer an e-Portfolio solution hosted in a cloud environment. The platform will be tested by real users and will allow them to assess their current knowledge against e-Skills and digital competences demanded by the job market.
So, users will be able to:
- Create and manage their personal e-portofolio
- Perform an e-Skills audit using the e-Skills Match platform and self-assess their position in the job environment
- Identify their gaps against those e-Skills and digital competences required for the desirable occupation within the ICT Plan their (re-) training if necessary with learning methods and educational tools like Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and Open Educational Resources (OER) to complement their occupational e-Skills and apply for market certifications offered by the system.
Launched in September 2015 and running for the next 24 months, e-Skills Match is being implemented by a consortium comprised of the following partners: Stockholm University (Sweden) as the project coordinator, Fondazione Politecnico di Milano (Italy), Universidad de Alcalá (Spain), Adfor SpA (Italy) and Government To You (Belgium)
