Nowadays, the labor market is changing very quickly, and the geopolitical situation affects the situation on the markets. The last two years of the pandemic, the war in Ukraine, and the economic crisis require young people not only to have appropriate qualifications, but also the ability to build a career in a dynamic environment. The Future of Jobs Report 2020 prepared by the World Economic Forum indicates that in the next 5 years the key skills for future employees will be: analysis and problem solving, creativity, leadership and introducing changes, digital and soft skills. This is confirmed by Cedefop in the Skills Forecast 2030 report. Adecco Poland (2021) indicates that the most important skills of young employees are: the ability to work in a team, creativity and innovation, communication and negotiations, technological skills and the ability to learn throughout life.
Tools for career advisors will help young people acquire skills that are not only desired by employers, but also useful in everyday life. Thanks to this, young people will be more willing to participate in training and vocational education, which will increase the attractiveness of these activities. These tools will be flexible because career counselors will be able to use them in different contexts and for different target groups. Thanks to this, they will be available to everyone, regardless of education level, age or skills. As a result, this project will contribute to increasing the flexibility and diversity of the vocational education and training offer. Moreover, these tools will be flexible and available to different target groups, which will contribute to increasing the flexibility and diversity of the VET offer, in line with the priorities of the Erasmus+ Program.
WE STARTED: READY TO START! – HAS STARTED!
On October 17-18, the inaugural meeting of the “Ready to start” project took place in Skopije! We would like to thank the IMPULSI Partner for organizing the kick of the meeting. The meeting was not just a formal start of the project. It was a very fruitful and productive meeting during which we discussed the activities and results we want to achieve.
We have initially discussed the scope of coaching sessions in the area of professional career. Additionally, we have developed a preliminary list of future professions that our beneficiaries will learn through a multimedia game developed as part of the project.
The future professions on our preliminary map are: Data Analyst, Business Analyst in the field of Genetic Materials, Virtual and Augmented Reality Specialist, Quality Tester, Cybersecurity Specialist, Hydrogen Technician, Photovoltaic Technician, IT Solutions Technician AI-based, Data Ethics Officer, Vegan Farmer, Cricket Breeder.
The project has started – let’s get started!
