Research on cultural and creative industries employment’s channels
The research is a mapping of the state of art of the recruiting system in the cultural and creative sectors in the partners’ countries and compares the skills acquired at the completion of the education cycle with skills required by the cultural and creative labour market. The element of innovation is that we are mapping it, identifying it (and in our view this is important) per sector, and guide the adult and
young adult jobseekers to where they should focus on, when presenting themselves through their stories.
The CERTIFY Card Game to help you create a Digital ‘curricular’ story
We have designed and developed a digital application which can facilitate the creation of digital ‘curricular’ stories. This “game” is innovative in being a free tool to develop personal stories that can be used to support unemployed people in finding new job opportunities and building up their confidence while applying for a job. It will guide job seekers/storytellers throughout the process, hence being particularly effective for this specific objective, but also open for re-use in other storytelling approaches. We also envisage its effectiveness to produce digital stories that could be included into personal e-portfolios.
The CERTIFY Learning Platform
An e-Learning platform collecting learning modules for the updating and the reinforcing of the transversal skills needed in the cultural and creative labour market.
The CERTIFY Handbooks on Digital Storytelling and Mentoring
The handbooks can help adult educators to support learners in creating a communication product to highlight a personal attitude through:
– narrative process,
– identification of their strengths and skills
– implementation of a ‘digital curricular story’
– process of validation
Both handbooks are available in English, German, Greek, Italian and Lithuanian and you can access them via this link.
Digital Curricular Stories
Using the digital ‘curricular’ application, digital stories were created by the target audience in each of the countries under the guidance of trained partners. This is an absolutely innovative approach in education (formal and non-formal) that will have a positive impact both on unemployed people and adults seeking for job opportunities in the creative and cultural sector, by giving them awareness of
their skills, enhancing their self-confidence, providing them additional digital tools. The same editing approach and process may be transferred and applied for the production of other types of videos and photo-voice.
