On September 18, SCM presented to the public its “Skills Passport,” which was developed together with employers working with Ukrainian universities. The “Skills Passport” is meant to help bridge the existing gap between the demand and supply of specialists in the labor market, especially when the skills and knowledge of graduates do not meet the expectations of employers. The documents will clearly outline the skills and knowledge a specialist needs to be hired at a good salary with career opportunities.
Presently, such occupational standards are being developed for eight professions in the steel industry, energy and in journalism. The passports will underlie educational standards and serve as a basis for curricula in 23 pilot universities. The Ministry of Education, Science, Youth and Sports, the British Council in Ukraine, the Federation of Employers and the “Best” think tank are partners of the initiative. More information (in Ukrainian) can be found here.
