Feasibility study and technical specification on the development of a citizen tool for transversal skills
This study analysed the feasibility of an online tool which could give citizens the ability to assess their own transversal skills. This would form part of the single access point of European skills transparency tools and would help citizens (probably of lower secondary level and above) to identify strengths and weaknesses, encourage the recognition of informal and non-formal learning, and support CV completion. It would have as its backbone the competence reference frameworks developed for digital, entrepreneurship and languages.
Main goals of the study were to:
- To assess the usefulness of the tool, from the perspective of citizens, employers, educational systems and policy makers.
- To assess conceptual feasibility and technical potential of the tool within the single access point.
- To produce a cost/benefit analysis of the tool – financial implications to be brought by the tool, along with the measurement of benefits.
To produce recommendations on structure and content, with examples how it could be presented, what questions could be asked, what feedback could be given etc.
