”SMART – Skill Matching for Regional Development – created processes and tools to match jobs with the educational opportunities available to young people, and help shape the local job market.
The last few years have seen many young people in the autonomous community of Andalusia in Spain having to leave the area to find work relevant to their educational background. Many jobs in the area require skills that simply aren’t provided by Spanish universities.
A project called SMART was designed to try and address these challenges, by creating processes and tools to help educational institutes and businesses match skills to jobs.
Pablo Morales, project coordinator explained how funding from the EU helped the SMART project to get underway.” Source: European Commission. Pablo Morales
