Get ready for PILOT 2: Testing in action (November 2019)

About SkillsMatch

The SkillsMatch platform will offer users a tool for assessing their soft skills, identifying any strengths and weaknesses in relation to particular occupations they may aspire to. It will then offer a personalized training itinerary to overcome any skill gaps using free Open Education Resources (OER) and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and a portfolio linked to Open Badges, which will provide recognition of the user’s new skills.

There will be three project pilots on the SkillsMatch project, each with a slightly different purpose. These pilots are designed to gather real feedback from you the end-user during the development of the platform. They will act as evaluation exercises that allow us to improve the system and meet your needs directly. 

Pilot 2: Testing in action

SkillsMatch’s pilot sites in Sweden, Ireland and Spain will open their doors to welcome once again the participants of the first pilot of the project. 

After having given valuable feedback in the first pilot workshop and having shared their ideas and insights, the participants wil be invited to get a first look at the prototype of SkillsMatch platform

Most important, they will test it and evaluate it. This workshop will enable the consortium to understand how engaging the prototype is and gather feedback. 

End-users in each pilot partner country will be presented with a set of design processes and activities (based on the results of WP2, WP3 and WP4), and will share ideas on these prototypes. 

The outcome of these sessions will help generate material for the continuation of WP2, WP3, WP4 and WP5 of SkillsMatch.
