Evidence of effectiveness
The portal functions as expected. There are about 10,000 users (job seekers) registered on the portal. Registered users have the opportunity to select professions they are looking for or are interested in. The system allows users access to information on the skills required for the selected profession, training courses and vacancies available (these can be filtered based on user preferences). About 800 professions are described in the system. The portal also offers vacancies (about 68,000 opened in October 2017), which are either downloaded from the vacancy portal of the Labour Offices or posted by employers themselves to the website. About 6,000 various training courses are also available and linked to selected professions.
Engagement of stakeholders
The engagement of stakeholders (mostly funding) depends of the effectiveness of the tool, which broadly speaking is the number of active users. There are many other opportunities for job seekers to find a job or training on-line (similar websites, social networks etc), but the value-added of the instrument is that it clearly defines required skills for particular professions using the standards of the National Register of Qualification and National System of Profession.
