Transversal skills such as entrepreneurship, digital, or foreign languages, are often gained in an informal or non-formal setting. Therefore, tools need to be available to ensure that individuals can validate this learning and use it to inform future learning or to enhance their employability.
To this end, a self-assessment tool for citizens could be useful, in order for them to self-assess their transversal skills and use the results of this to determine a future learning path or to demonstrate a skill set to employers.
The purpose of this study is to determine the utility and feasibility of such a tool, both in terms of social worth and in terms of technical specifications.
