Tom Coote's Projects
- March 2012 to 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.
- February 2011 to Present
I worked with Skills For Logistics on developing a website for their sector to enable people ether in the industry or looking to be in the industry to find out more on the types of jobs available, including the training required, expected salaries, how to get into the job and where to find further information.
