A key challenge in improving life-long learning, employee flexibility, and skill-matching is the assessment of workplace relevant competencies and the planning of individual learning paths for career development. To address this challenge, the research and innovation project DEVELOP (Developing Careers through Social Networks and Transversal Competencies) funded by the European Commission will create a methodology and a technical framework assisting personnel development professionals and employees in discovering optimum ways to unite company’s strategy and business goals with the employee’s potentials, career perspectives, and desires.
The aim of the DEVELOP project is to create a personalised learning environment providing assessment of transversal competencies and social capital to highlight learning opportunities for career development. This will be combined with personalised visualisations of potential career paths to inform and guide learners towards realistic and attainable careers.
DEVELOP will deliver an adaptive learning environment that dynamically tailors the exploration, comprehension, and planning of learning opportunities and career paths in medium and large companies. It will aid employee learning through reflection on transversal competencies and social capital, as key enablers of career development.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 688127.
