Skill Up Hub
This output is aimed at providing a virtual platform that brings together employers representatives, academic staff, and career counsellors to better prepare students for work. The platform – that acts as a hub – will be a centre of connection between the HE and VET system and the workplace. It will be accessible from the website of the project and it will reinforce the dissemination, transfer and multiplication of all knowledge and resources generated through the Skill Up project.
The hub is aimed at providing:
- Undergraduates and new graduates with employment counselling and guidance and assistance on how to assess and improve their skills for the labour market. Also, with a channel to find opportunities for virtual internships.
- HE and VET academic staff with a space to share knowledge, resources and best practices in order to create curricula activities that take account of professional world real needs as part of students learning.
- Employers with support to define the particular competences they require from their employees and opportunity to participate in the development and quality assurance of programmes. Also, with a channel to offer opportunities for virtual internships.
- Career counsellors with accessible and affordable professional development and tools to spread their guidance and mentoring services through e-Counselling.
