- The Spanish EdTech’s ‘Employability Program,’ specialized in unlimited learning ecosystems, addresses the problem of the high university unemployment rate in our country (8.6%), the second highest in Europe.
- Through this program, undergraduate and graduate students have access to more than 10,000 multi-format resources focused on the acquisition of transversal skills that are in demand in the workplace, such as Soft Skills and Digital Competencies.
Madrid, February 21st 2023.- Spain closed 2022 with an unemployment rate of 29.26% among those 25 years old and younger, according to data from the National Statistics Institute (INE). Far from exclusively affecting those with a lower academic level, youth unemployment is also a problem in the case of higher education. According to Eurostat (European Statistical Office), Spain is the second country in the European Union with the second highest number of unemployed university students (8.6%), behind only Greece (10.6%) and double the European average (4.2%).
In order to reverse this situation and encourage recent graduates to have greater opportunities to access the labor market, ODILO, the Spanish EdTech that allows any organization to create its own Learning Ecosystem and offers its users unlimited access to the world’s largest catalog of multi-format educational content and the ability to create all kinds of learning experiences without restrictions, has launched a program to prepare undergraduate and graduate students in the most demanded skills in the market.
This program offers specific training for students who are seeking employment, favoring a deeper understanding of their area of expertise in disciplines as diverse as new technologies, health and wellness, economics and finance, social sciences, industry or marketing strategy and techniques. In addition, it has an intelligently adapted and personalized selection of more than 10,000 resources and more than 40 customized learning experiences.
Additionally, it has as a transversal axis the learning of Soft Skills such as management skills, emotional intelligence, teamwork, resilience or even how to conduct a job interview. To this we add the opportunity to train in computer and digital skills, as well as language learning, two other issues that help to enrich the curriculum and improve the chances of positioning in a particular job position.
Through this program, ODILO helps higher education institutions to offer their students a way to acquire all these skills in order to be successful when entering the working world. Especially when we take into account the current priority of attracting talent with high adaptability, strong interpersonal skills and great mastery of digital technologies, in which the ‘Employability Program’ is a great ally.
A program tailored to the interests of each student
The program has an adapted and personalized selection of more than 10,000 multi-format training resources from a total of 4 million resources. In addition, 40 different learning experiences, which are supported by the contents of the catalog and adapted to the learning style of each learner. These are organized and structured learning proposals that can include content (copyrighted, proprietary or free), and follow different methodologies through which the user can use exercises, lectures, lessons, information, etc. to achieve their learning objectives.
Among these learning experiences are, for example, ‘Flexibility and adaptation to change’ oriented to professionals who want to work on case studies to develop their capacity for flexible work, as well as adaptation to changes that may arise within a work environment. Another example is ‘Development of creative thinking’ focused on increasing the creative skills of teachers and students, with the aim of understanding and appreciating how creativity and innovation can boost academic and professional performance; or even ‘Feedback’ in which the user will learn how to give and receive feedback, as well as key techniques and concepts and an action plan to develop talent.
In the process of choosing these resources, the ‘Employability Program’ includes original content provided by the university institutions themselves, experiences designed by pedagogical experts from these schools, as well as content curated by ODILO’s instructional designers and other selected resources that integrate the unlimited learning ecosystem. In fact, ODILO is the only solution that allows you to natively create and consume all types of learning experiences using any type of content, without the limitations of format, copyright or integrations.
AI plays a leading role in personalizing the experience for each user, since it adapts recommendations according to the needs and interests of each student, making the content relevant to the moment each person is going through. The content can be consumed both online and offline and ODILO BI makes it possible to have metrics regarding the evolution and process of each student.
Ultimately, the ‘Employability Program’ benefits university students, higher education institutions, and employers, by enhancing the skills and performance of the new generations joining the labor market.
