The ‘DAISS2: Diagnostic for Enterprise Skills’ project aims to adapt, pilot and transfer an innovative psychometric diagnostic tool for assessing and developing the soft skills of enterprise and entrepreneurship.
We will test and evaluate:
its validity in a range of environments, cultures and sectors,
its impact on adult employability within each of the partner countries,
and opportunities for its wider application and exploitation within the EU including processes for sustaining its use after the end of the project.
The diagnostics have been developed in response to growing employer demand for a more entrepreneurial and enterprising workforce.
DAISS2 builds on a previous LdV ‘Transfer of Innovation’ project that has successfully transferred soft skills diagnostics and a job matching tool to 6 EU countries.
DAISS2 will complement this initiative and broaden the range of products designed to improve employment prospects for job seekers across the EU.
