Metropolis Practitioner Toolkit is meant to provide educators with a manual to facilitate the integration of digital resources within their teaching and maximise the impact of the other project resources. Additionally, it aims to improve youngsters’ knowledge of the employment opportunities offered by local labour market, in order to overcome current skill mismatches and contribute to reducing high levels of youth unemployment.
Thus, the Toolkit is meant to achieve these goals through two Components:
- Practitioner Support Guides: practical guides for professionals on how to harness and exploit digital developments within their guidance work.
- ‘Jobs of the future’ resource pack: supplementary information, tools and resources to build on the impact of the city map guides in guidance. The manual is expected to have a direct effect on the digital skills and confidence of education and guidance professionals and, consequently, on the level of digitalisation and quality of learning offered in the classroom. Youngsters will also profit from better information regarding the needs of future labour market, to orientate their long-term career development and avoid skill mismatches.
