Projects

EIF Promoting Careers - supporting entry and progression routes(Link)

– Present

This Project is to try to solve the recruitment problems within Lantra’s footprint combining an information, advice and guidance (IAG) portal with employer/stakeholder support for entry into employment for volunteers and for hard to reach groups, those not in employment, education or training (NEETS) and those seeking to secure employment upon release from prison.

I am focusing on several areas on this EIF project which include:-

- Careers Web Portal
- Development of a NEETS (not in education, employment, or training) skills recording solution
- Development of a skills’ based recording solution for Prisoners returning to work

Over the past few months, I have been looking at the existing solutions Lantra have in place and that were developed by myself a few years ago to see exactly how they can be redeveloped to meet the need of this project.

The functional requirements specification will be developed over the coming weeks and I will be updating this project accordingly.
