BOLD Action: EduLab

Article

EduLab is a skills matching online platform that combines labor and education sector.

EduLab has three main goals that cater to its three main beneficiaries – students, professors and employers.

  1. Enhancing student visibility and giving them a practical insight into today’s market;
  2. Connecting college professors with market experts in a way where employers would be able to show in which areas young employees are mostly lacking, after finishing college, and educate/advise professors on the topic of soft skills that are mostly required on the current market in their area of expertise, so that professors could incorporate the knowledge they gathered into the college curriculum, thus making it easier for students/future employees to live up to the needs of today’s market;
  3. Create a more sufficient and adequate cadre of young professionals who have a real insight into the market today.

The project’s main objective is interactively connecting college students and professors with employers on the market by organizing educational programs in which both students and professors would be advised, by the employer, on current practical soft skills that are mostly needed and how to incorporate them into the curriculum today.
