There are no qualitative results of evaluations of Anelo.lu available, as no official evaluations have been performed to assess the impact of the services on career choices, career skills or the empowerment of users. Only anecdotal evidence exists on the impact of Anelo.lu on career choices and career skills, according to the experience of career counsellors and youth workers, who consider that the platform succeeds quite well in achieving these goals.

Evaluation process: the different tools are presented to a small group of potential users for evaluation prior to their launch.

  • Motivation of stakeholders to keep the platform up-to-date and reliable;
  • One stop shop for youngster in search of information and tools provision to upgrade their skills;
  • User friendliness and appealing layout

Qualitative continuous updating.

Practical barriers with accounts, e.g. difficulties remembering personal password and settings.

Due to rapid technological change, some tools are not available on all processors or internet browsers.

Transferability elements

  • Lack of a one-stop shop with job information;
  • Financial crisis in 2008 which led to a substantial increase of jobless young people that induced the call for improved guidance services.

Anelo.lu is developed partly by funding of the European Social Fund (50%) and partly with public money (50%). 

Regarding the maintenance and keeping the information up-to-date on Anelo.lu, each department is responsible for its own work field:

As policy reforms and school reforms have implications for the information provided on Anelo.lu, continuous updating is necessary in order to keep the platform reliable and up-to-date. The updating of the information remains the responsibility of each organisation.

  • Anelo.lu is a stand-alone website containing several links to the different tools of Anelo.lu;
  • These different platforms are secured as they are only accessible by a unique personal password, in combination with an e-mail address;
  • Specific software is developed by external specialised companies, in collaboration with graphical design firms.

No specific non-ICT elements are needed for the usage of Anelo.lu.
