Skills audits across EU member states

Skills audits are proposed as a procedure for iden­ti­fy­ing and docu­men­ting knowledge, skills and com­pe­ten­ces. In this study, their use in practice is analysed and sug­ge­sti­ons for impro­ve­ment are developed.

Through this study, the Commission aimed to create a better knowledge base about the avai­la­bi­li­ty of skills audits to target groups, the varia­ti­ons in how skills audits are carried out, what they entail, who is involved and which assess­ment and iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on methods are being used.

It also collected evidence on the demand and supply of skills audits across the EU and the effec­ti­ve­ness of different types of practices. More spe­ci­fi­cal­ly the study gives an over-view (mapping) of skills audits in 16 EU Member States: Austria, Belgium (BE-fr and BE-nl), Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden,  and the UK (England/Scotland).

The results of the study will be used to further develop gui­de­lines on how to design and im-plement skills audits.

The study was coor­di­na­ted by ICF (BE) with 3s team members as country experts for Austria (Karin Luomi-Messerer) and the Czech Republic (Lubomir Valenta).
