Role in Project:

Main input in WP2 (framework development), WP4 (measurement, credentialisation) and WP7 (evaluation of outcomes, with specific reference to WP2 and WP3). Also contributing to WP1 (project management) and, WP6 (stakeholder engagement and dissemination).

Your team in this project:

I will work principally with Paul O’Raw to recruit a pilot leader for Ireland, and with Luis Fernandez to develop the NC Skills framework and individual learning roadmaps. Our main team members are TCD, Everis, FPM, UAH, SU.

Why do you like this project? 

As a professional development and standards expert, I recognise the importance of standardised NC skills to flesh out the competence profiles of individuals seeking employment, and aspire to an acceptance of transversal being routinely included in professional role profiles

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

Challenges in my WP’s include navigating the copious sources of NC skill compilations, and determining a definitive, useful list that can contribute to learning roadmaps, sustaining the pilot groups in each country over the course of the project, and ultimately gaining acceptance of the final core deliverable.

What do you hope to achieve in this project? 

I hope to provide some insight into a user-centric system development process, with a focus on usability and relevance for individuals.
