In order to design a targeted path for up-skilling low qualified, they are absolutely necessary appropriate assessment methods.

The project has provided inclusive and practical tools to help intermediary professional identify their clients attitudes, skills and competences as a first step for a tailored, more empathic and efficient approach to recruiting and counselling. The project has been focused on creating useful assessment tools for profiling low skilled/low qualified and complementing the intermediary professionals with Coaching Circles Training Methodology (a new method to collaborate, share and cascade acquired skills-set and competences).
