"CAREER PATHWAYS AND GREEN SKILLS"
TecMinho and the “Career Pathways” Erasmus+ project will be hosting the Webinar “CAREER PATHWAYS AND GREEN SKILLS”, to be held on the 26th of May, from 11:00 to 12:00 CET (10:00 – 11:00 Lisbon time).
During the Webinar, we will present tools that allow individuals to create their CV, based on competences (using ESCO descriptors), explain how to use the tool to get new skills and training and to get better jobs.
The Career Pathways tools will allow individuals to create their own career paths based on skills, to access available green jobs. They will understand the path to upskill or re-skill to access those future jobs. The Career Pathways tool will present different pathways and trainings that lead them to progress to better and higher paid jobs. Using visualization tools, it will be possible to get an idea of the most in demand green jobs today and up to 2030.
The aim will be to deepen the understanding of the importance of the “Career Pathways” project tools as instruments to link labour market needs and adults looking for better jobs in the green economy.
The Erasmus+ “Career Pathways” project is promoted by TecMinho in collaboration with a European partnership of entities from Portugal, Spain, and Greece and aims to develop and test new tools that help adults to access the labour market by providing worked information/”intelligence” on the skills that the labour market wants now and in the future. These tools are specifically targeted at all adult jobseekers and those seeking training to increase their skills for the “good jobs”. Support tools for the development of career paths will also be developed for career counselors, employers, training centres and regional policy makers. The aim is to develop career pathways to future jobs and green jobs, working together with Education and Training organizations, employers and career and employment professionals.
The Webinar “CAREER PATHWAYS AND GREEN SKILLS” will take place entirely online, in English Language.

Webinar “Career pathways and Green Economy”
Our webinar, an Associated Event of the European Vocational Skills Week 2022, showed the urgency of using smart tools to visualize data to access “good jobs”. The smart tools we are developing, working together with education and training organizations, employers, and career advisors, will allow adults to access near real-time data on future jobs and green jobs.
Thanks to the 50 participants and to the 7 speakers from TecMinho, Forave, IDEC, Universidad del Pais Vasco, Pontydysgu, and Active Citizens Partnership.

Under the scope of the European Vocational Skills Week 2022, TecMinho and the “Career Pathways” Erasmus+ project will be hosting the Webinar “CAREER PATHWAYS AND GREEN ECONOMY”, to be held on the 17th May, between 11:00 and 12:00 CET (10:00 – 11:00 Lisbon time).
The webinar aims to promote a lively debate on how the Green Economy is a good example of how adults can up-skill or re-skill to access “better” jobs.
The webinar is targeted at Adult jobseekers (unemployed or looking for new opportunities), VET providers, trainers, career guidance professionals, employers, regional policy makers, and all those interested in the topics covered by this event.
The shift towards more sustainable and greener economies is reshaping labour market demand and supply. This increases the importance of building skills and new career pathways throughout life to bridge skills gaps, support labour market transitions and foster social inclusion.
A key challenge is how to make the best use of evolving skills intelligence/information in a rapidly changing world, and how this intelligence/information can be accessed.
The webinar is part of the Erasmus+ project “Career Pathways” promoted by TecMinho, which includes a partnership of European institutions from Portugal, Spain and Greece.
The Erasmus+ project “Career Pathways” aims to develop and test new tools to help access the labour market and intelligence on skills that the labour market seeks now and in the future. These tools will be aimed at adult job seekers, training seekers, Education and Training providers, career guidance professionals, employers and regional policy makers.
The objective is to develop career pathways to future jobs and green jobs, working together with Education and Training organisations, employers and career and employment professionals.
The event “CAREER PATHWAYS AND GREEN ECONOMY” will be held online, in English Language.
