General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) applies to the processing of personal data collected for carrying out EucA's activities in the framework of its aims as described in its statute.

Soft skills such as communication, teamwork, creativity and entrepreneurship are more and more in demand in today’s labour market and these competencies may prove to be the distinguishing factor between two candidates with equivalent qualifications and experience.

 

What do we mean by soft skills?

“Soft Skills represent a dynamic combination of cognitive and meta-cognitive skills, interpersonal, intellectual and practical skills. Soft skills help people to adapt and behave positively so that they can deal effectively with the challenges of their professional and everyday life”.

 

How can we measure these skills?

How can students and young workers demonstrate these skills on a CV or e-Portfolio? What are today’s and tomorrow’s employers really looking for?

 

The eLene4work European project is tackling the definition of these soft skills, including digital soft skills, and proposes a series of actions and practical tools to help young talents better understand the expectations of employers, to assess their own level of competency and to further develop these skills through open education initiatives such as MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and OERs (Open Educational Resources).

All the tools are available freely on the website.

 

The partnership is composed by Fondazione Politecnico di Milano, Associations des Universités pour l’enseignement Numérique en Economie et Gestion, Universität Bremen, Fundació per a la Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, European Distance and e-learning network, EucA, University of Helsinki, SEN Junior Achievement Greece, Metid - Politecnico di Milano, Maria Curie Sklodowska University, University of Dundee.

This project has been funded by Erasmus + programme of the European Union.
