Project description

The objective of SayIT is the strengthening of key competences in initial and continuing VET for IT professionals through reinforcing their soft skills and making them more qualified and competitive on a professional level.

SayIT primarily addresses IT professionals who are hampered in their professional development due to the lack of relevant soft skills. The project also addresses relevant stakeholders who can influence the training programmes offered for the professionals of the IT sector.

Soft skills development within SayIT covers five main thematic blocks:

  • Communication skills
  • Problem solving skills
  • Teamwork skills
  • Organisational skills
  • Interpersonal skills

The goals of the project will be achieved by developing two innovative results:

  1. Soft Skills curriculum for IT Professionals SayIT Curriculum is a proposal of holistic approach towards upskilling IT professionals in the area of soft skills and a reference document for elaborating soft skills training for IT professionals. It is characterised by a modular, competence-based framework enhanced by subsets of defined learning outcomes.
  2. Soft Skills Trainer app This output will be prepared in a form of a mobile application to facilitate easy access to training and will be based on an innovative learning methodology of a visual novel.
