The IPB launches, within the FIT4FoF project, a tool for the analysis of upskills

Discover FIT4FoF's Skills4.0 platform that recommends education programmes according to the matching of job profiles, trends and skills to improve.

The Instituto Politecnico de Bragança (IPB) together with the Research Centre in Digitalization and Intelligent Robotics (CeDRI) have created, in the framework of the European project FIT4FoF, the platform "Skills4.0 - Upskilling Analysis Tool" which is currently in its first phase.

This tool is free to use and free of charge, and provides access to four main sections: Trends, Job profiles, Training Programs and Matching of these three categories. The "Trends" section lists the current trends in 4.0 technologies with a detailed description of each one and its keywords. Job profiles is a catalogue that lists the job name, sector, description, and skills required for the new jobs and work profiles that have appeared in recent years and those that are needed for the industry of the future. In addition, the Training programs section shows the courses specialised in these 4.0 technologies identified, and to which anyone can add more courses focused on these topics that they may know about around the world.

The focal point of this platform lies in the Matching section, where, after choosing the sector, trends, job profiles affected and the skills that have upskilling needs, the tool will recommend training programs suitable to improve and supply those needs. Also, through these recommendations, the platform will show a map of the level of the gap and impact of those skills.

The content of this tool, i.e. information on soft and hard skills, training programmes and technology trends, has been identified from the survey to identify gaps and future job profiles that was launched at the beginning of the project and it’s reflected on the deliverables 1.2, 1.4 and 1.5 available on the FIT4FoF website.

For all interested persons who would like to know more about this tool, IPB will demonstrate its functionality through an interactive session during the Knowledge Exchange Workshop of October 27.
