THE EU SKILLS PANORAMA – Achieving Regional and Local Impact (ARLI)

Since April 1, 2013 till March 31, 2014

Contact person: Ing. Zdeňka Matoušková CSc.

Aim of the project:

The ARLI project seeked to utilise a system of mutual learning to gather good practices from regional and sub-regional experts across the partner countries and to use this to support both the EU Skills Panorama – online labour market information tool developed for the European Commission. It will also help in sharing knowledge among very large number of existing regional intelligence providers, many of whom are members of the European Network on Regional Labour Market Monitoring (ENRLMM). Innovative policies and practices have been analysed and shared. 

The project had two core objectives:

  • The first is to support the implementation of the EU Skills Panorama by utilising the expertise of both partners and the ENRLMM, relating the Panorama with existing skills forecasting provision, achieving greatly enhanced impact and added value for the Panorama.
  • The second is to use a good practice approach to explore how existing regional and local provision of skills forecasting can be enhanced for stakeholders through interrelation with the Panorama.

Role of the NOET in the project:

For the ARLI project, NVF work was based on its cooperation with several Czech regions where NVF develops regional information systems on labour market as a support tool for the regional government, PES and other users.

In the ARLI project, the NVF led 3rd working package aimed to National Good Practice Case Studies.  Deliverables of this package are:

  • Good Practice Description Form & Guidance Notes: These may include fields covering: characteristics of the practice (what, where, when, for whom); objectives of the practice (why, with what aims); impact and evidence of results; reflections by the providers of the good practice on the scope for mainstreaming.
  • Good Practice Compendium: A thematic collection of 36 examples of initiatives that have focused on anticipating or improving understanding of employment trends and skills needs in the medium term, i.e. to 2020.
  • Good Practice – Synthesis Report: This will explore the extent to which lessons, guidelines or principles emerge from our review of good practices that are transferable and which could support the work of members of the a) European Network on Labour Market Monitoring and b) the EU Skills Panorama.
