Skills 4 employability – enchancing the presence of soft skills in higher education curricula is a project funded by the erasmus + program. In which, we support universities in their efforts to improve the quality of education by adapting curricula to the soft-skill demands of the labour market and, as a result, leverage heis’ impact on the employment situation of future graduates. In other words, the project will strengthen heis capacity to assess whether and to what extent their programs match the soft skills that are particularly valued in the labour market.
The project aims to support and strengthen heis assessment practices to enable a better anticipation and management of the transformative change concerning skill requirements, and the adjustment of their curricula to the actual needs of the labour market. This project aims at building the capacity of hei to assess their programs in terms of soft-skill supply, the ultimate objective being to improve the relevance and impact of hei on its students’ employability.
We are working on this stimulating project together with 4 partners: Universitatea Politehnica Din Bucaresti (Romania), Universita Degli Studi di Roma La Sapienza (Italy), Agencia per la Qualitat del Sistema Universitari de Catalunya (Spain), Kauno Technologijos Universitetas (Lithuania).
