Beyond hard skills and formal qualifications, employers are often concerned about the lack of transversal competences that current employees (or prospective new hires) needed to perform various tasks successfully. According to the 2107 World Economic forum Report, with regard to the overall scale of demand for various skills in 2020, 36% of all jobs across all industries are expected to require complex problem-solving, social skills —such as persuasion, emotional intelligence and teaching others— will be in higher demand across industries than narrow technical skills.
The present project aims at offering an all in one social/transversal skills improvement program that incorporate best practices available for use by individuals, other organizations, enterprises and local, regional, national and European authorities, while raising the awareness on the need for these skills. The project is expected to have different core elements for future cooperation considered a priority of all the participating organizations and the European Union.
A better awareness on the importance of lifelong learning possibilities will increase their motivation for improvement and enhancing their employability skills in the process.
