SERIO to conduct an evaluation of SkillsPlanner



Over the next two years SERIO will be evaluating an exciting new Ethos-led initiative 'SkillsPlanner' which aims to solve skills shortages in the construction industry.

The prestigious project, which has been awarded £827,000 development funding from Innovate UK is based on a powerful Linked Open Data platform, created by technology leader and project partner Seme4. The platform has been designed to allow stakeholders to share current and future employment needs, facilitating collaborative planning, training and brokerage to meet the industry's requirements. SkillsPlanner project director Rebecca Lovelace says: 'SkillsPlanner is an Ethos 'perfect storm'. It demonstrates how a genuinely collaborative approach can create an economically viable solution to a complex urban challenge, resulting in a positive social outcome.'

SERIO will be undertaking research to help evaluate and understand the impact of SkillsPlanner, particularly in its ability to match skills to demand and its role in providing relevant and more informed training to meet employer need.
