Value My Skills goes online to support more workers

Unionlearn's highly popular Value My Skills cards are now available as an online tool, making it accessible more people and offer increased support for those looking to explore ways to review their skills.

Online Value My Skills

The new innovative and interactive Value My Skills online tool aims to help workers identify transferable skills.

Unionlearn Projects Office Jane Warwick said:

We have experiences and skills from all areas of our lives and this tool will help you identify your strengths and areas for development. You might be considering a change of job or promotion, doing a course or some voluntary work, or simply want to review what you can offer to the jobs market.”

The tool takes users through steps with clear instructions to identify and rate your skills, keep reflection notes, design an action plan and record your progress. 

Users can use the tool on their own or could consider having a Union Learning Rep with them so they discuss their findings.

Developed through the Erasmus+ Mid-life Skills Review project the tool can be used to help to: prepare for a one-to-one, complete an application form or write a CV, plan for future development or start a general discussion. The online tool is now available in six languages: English, Finnish, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

Jane added:

If you or your colleagues are thinking about a promotion, preparing for retirement, a new job or course, use the online tool to help you think about the skills you already have and the ones you would like to develop further.”

To access the online tool log into the TUC Education website.
