COMMUNITY EVENTS IN PORTUGAL

Following the first meeting of the Monitoring Committee of the Erasmus+ project “Career Pathways”, held last March, in which we had the participation of the representatives from companies, employment agencies, career guidance, universities, and VET associations, FORAVE organised, in cooperation with TecMinho, the second working session, which aimed to present the progress already made on the “My Career Pathways Web Portal”, based on the project objectives and the feedback obtained from the members of Monitoring Committees in each partner country.

The webinar took place on the 28th November and the main topics covered were the “My Career Pathways Web Portal”, the new features implemented in 2023, the provision of data on jobs and skills by sector and geographical area based on online job advertisements by region in the 28 European countries, and the consultation and debate on new features to be created.

In general, the Monitoring Committee considered the platform a very useful tool for career guidance and was very clear about the functionalities they expected from it, giving important inputs related to attractiveness, agility, and AI transformational power on the achievements of the several tools that will be created for job seekers and career advisors, as well as specific training.

As an immediate result of the meeting, FORAVE and TecMinho were invited by the Education Municipality office to make a presentation of the Career Pathways platform, to a group of experts that is in charge of working on the new VET Training Diagnosis for the Local Education and Training Network.

In this project, several tools will be developed based on data and information from open databases, which analyse the current labour market situation, and the present and future skills requirements in different jobs; provide career pathways to training and employment for unemployed and people at risk of unemployment; provide data to employers, policymakers, managers and vocational education and training providers on skills and training demands related to national and regional markets, and train career advisors from public employment services in the use of the digital tools developed.

COMMUNITY EVENTS IN GREECE

After the successful conclusion of the 1st Community event for the ‘Career Pathways’ project, which took place online last May, and was attended by representatives from the labor market, public and private educational institutions, and governmental bodies in the tourism sector, IDEC and Active Citizens Partnership collaborated once again to organize the 2nd Community session. The primary focus of this session was to delve deeper into the career pathways within the tourism sector in Greece. The discussion primarily centered around the digital tools developed by the project to facilitate the entry or redirection of businesses into the tourism labor market.

Conducted online on November 14th, 2023, the 2nd Community session addressed various topics, including the project’s objectives and an overview of the tools created thus far. IDEC, during the event, gathered feedback and suggestions for improvement from tourism experts in Vocational Education and the labor market. Active Citizens presented a detailed overview of the online platform, ‘My Career Pathways Web portal,’ highlighting its integrated aspects and overall progress. Additionally, they presented the ‘Online job adverts’ feature, based on data collected from jobs categorized by sector. The ultimate goal was to assess the practicality, realism, and user-friendliness of the tools, evaluating whether they provide valuable information and support, and if they effectively meet the needs of the end-users.

Throughout the event, Community experts provided valuable input on the functionality of the tools. They also shared improvement suggestions, such as reducing the overall categories to three, incorporating EQF levels as a reference, and presenting the top 5-10 required skills instead of a dashboard presentation. General feedback emphasized structuring levels based on skills rather than educational levels, with a parallel connection to the realistic needs of the labor market. Regarding the upskilling process, it was noted that a degree is required, but clarity is essential in depicting the pathway from which level the degree becomes necessary.

Lastly, expert participants offered suggestions on broader topics related to the tourism industry, discussing the need to include job descriptions in various positions within the public and private tourism sector, so that the interested parties are well aware of the offered jobs and their specific requirements.

Webinar"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.

Video of the Webinar

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.
