Passport for Work (PfW) is a three-year urban innovation project led by the city of Eindhoven and aims to increase the labour participation and ensure its regional labour market remains competitive as well as inclusive through developing an inter-sectoral skills passport with a gamified skills assessment.
In the Eindhoven region, there is an apparent growth paradox: the local high-tech industry is flourishing and home to many key international players, but a growing number of citizens are not suited for today and tomorrow’s jobs. The project therefore aims to increase labour participation and ensure the regional labour market remains competitive as well as inclusive. The project aims to achieve this by:
- Developing an inter-sectoral skills passport with a gamified assessment that can be used
in several sectors of the labour market
- Creating tailor-made and restructured eLearning education programmes for skills improvement
- Reducing the time for reintegrating jobseekers and ensuring more sustainable labour market outcomes
- Ensuring a better and more transparent connection between employers and employees by contributing to the creation of a common “skills language”.
