From 8 to 12 October, at the Museum of Natural History of the Mediterranean, the activity of LTTA (Learning, Teaching and Training Activities) of the ENGAGE project will gather in Livorno the 21 representatives of the partnership coming from Romania, Poland, Greece, Cyprus, Portugal, in addition to PLIS, to work on the training contents of a virtual platform that we are building together. The platform will first be used to diagnose the skills shortages of young unemployed adults and then establish what are the key future skills that may offer them job opportunities and finally develop those skills. Particular importance is given to key competences and interpersonal skills (soft skills) that can enhance their job prospects. A portal for matching the supply of specific skills by young adults and the demand for such skills by employers will then be developed on this basis.
Each partner, in view of this week of work group in Livorno, has been assigned the task of developing in-depth contents in the 8 areas that will form the contents of the virtual platform, the key competences that will allow our young adults with low levels of key skills to increase their potential. Creativity, Empathy / Emotional Intelligence, Innovative Mindset / Logical Thinking; Observation / Perception, Mental Openness, Motivation / Ability to take the initiative; Group work are the 8 areas considered fundamental in this sense and the partners at the Museum will exchange the results of the work done: diagnostic quizzes to test the levels of competence of young adults, specific and in-depth texts to study, study tests and verification of learning, interactive games for understanding and developing missing skills, funny memes.
As a good practice of the territory will be illustrated the web IDOL portal in use at the Job Centres of the Region of Tuscany for the match of the job supply and demand between the unemployed people and local businesses.
