Role in Project:

Pilot Leader

Your team in this project:

John Farrell, Laura Pierce, John Stewart 

Why do you like this project?

It is an exciting and innovative way for individuals to find out about and understand non cognitive skills and learn how to use them for employment. 

What are the challenges you will be facing to complete your tasks in this project?

The breaks between the pilots are long so retention of the same participants may be difficult throughout the project for all three pilots. It will be important to make sure that those joining for the second and third pilots will be well prepared with a good introduction to the project and briefing of what came out of the first pilot. 

What do you hope to achieve in this project?

By the end of this project we would hope to have a group of people who are looking for work better versed in how to apply their non cognitive skills to the workplace. We would also hope to have a group of employment advisors, mediators and organizations working with the unemployed who will be well aware of and understand the capacity of the platform to help those who are unemployed to gain full time sustainable work.
