PEPTalk 7: Skills assessment app using ESCO and AI

Self-service skills assessment using a smart app based on ESCO and AI!

Apart from MySkills in Germany, there is another new approach to help refugees finding a job quickly. It is an app that helps them in their own language to assess the skills they have gained through past experiences. It uses the ESCO taxonomy including over 13,500 individual skills and nearly 3,000 occupations, as well as state of the art artificial intelligence to match individuals to occupations and generate job-specific applications.

The resulting skill profiles can then be used by individuals, employment services, education institutions, and others, and integrated into existing career and education services. Mr. Ulrich Scharf, Managing Director of Skilllab will explain how it works and how a PES can use it to improve the chances of refugees in finding suitable work more quickly and efficiently.

PEPTalks are live & interactive: we encourage you to ask questions during the webinar.

ESCO is the multilingual classification of European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations. ESCO is part of the Europe 2020 strategy.

The ESCO classification identifies and categorises skills, competences, qualifications and occupations relevant for the EU labour market and education and training. It systematically shows the relationships between the different concepts.
