The objective of the ModEs project is to integrate a common European programme on soft skills in the academic curricula and in the post-diploma supplement. As result, a new curriculum will enrich the students' profile with new employment-oriented competencies (such as "Leadership, "Entrepreneur spirit", "ability to generate new ideas (creativity)".)Project Aims:
University education oriented to the needs and requests of companies.
Increased mobility of students and young professionals in Europe thanks to the soft skills form standardized and identified at a European level in the university curriculum.
Higher match between graduates' profiles and the labour market requests.Higher relations between university and enterprises.
Modernisation of the university education with broader student abilities.
The curriculum will be developed starting with a participatory “university-professional” approach.
Background information will be:
- Best practices based on educational methodologies concerning soft skills have already been implemented by some partners
- Interviews with companies and stakeholders to identify the most demanded soft skills in the workplace
Concretely, MODES will reach these results:
- Academic curriculum on soft skills in four languages (Italian, English, Spanish and Polish)
- Prototype of a serious game on soft skills in four languages (Italian, English, Spanish and Polish) to learn those skills identified before in interviews with companies’ representatives
