"Let Your Skill Make the Difference" Reveal Stakeholders' Seminar
The Reveal Stakeholders Seminar was successfully held on Thursday, May 18, 2023, bringing together over 30 participants from the education sector, businesses, and vulnerable social groups. This event took place in Novo Mesto, Slovenia, in hybrid form, with the aim of fostering collaboration and empowering individuals to unlock their hidden skills.
The seminar provided an excellent platform for participants to introduce themselves and engage with the innovative iREVEAL platform. Developed to facilitate skill recognition, the iREVEAL platform offers a user-friendly online tool that enables individuals to request endorsements for their soft skills and create online personal skill clouds.
During the event, the project partners tried to shed light on the significance of acknowledging skills acquired outside the formal education system.
“When you learn at school, you receive a diploma. However, for the skills gained in everyday life, there is no diploma. Badges have been invented to make this type of informal learning visible.”
The thought-provoking words resonated with the audience was very interested in emphasizing the importance of recognizing and valuing skills obtained through real-life experiences.
Moreover, during the seminar the potential of local initiatives to transcend geographical boundaries was highlighted.
“Something can be created locally and be made visible beyond the local community, at EU level… at international level…”
This exciting perspective showcased the vast opportunities that lie within the Reveal project and the iREVEAL platform.
The seminar also included an interactive session during which the participants had the chance to register to the iREVEAL platform, ask for endorsements for their skills from their peers and create their own skills clouds.
The Reveal Stakeholders Seminar served as a catalyst for the formation of a vibrant local community that will actively contribute to the unveiling of individual talents and skills. By harnessing the power of the iREVEAL platform, participants can tap into a supportive network that nurtures personal growth and professional development.
