RAISE Careers

The STEAM field is one of the main agents of change in the 21st century. Efforts need to be made to create more awareness and interest in STEAM employment. The RAISE project is a step towards achieving this goal across several European Union Countries. The European Commission is currently working towards reducing the skills mismatch being observed around Europe. Policies are being drafted to address these skill shortages and surplus due to changes in the employment sector which require Europe’s population to develop new skills. Through the project, we will be able to provide information on the qualifications and soft skills required by employees for particular STEAM careers, with VET education being given a priority. By doing so, we would be empowering individuals whilst ensuring that everyone has equal access to knowledge about opportunities in the job market not only in their home country but in a total of 5 European countries.

A New Skills Agenda for Europe (2016) states that by raising awareness on Vocational Educational employment, more people would make vocational education as their primary choice (European Commission, 2016, p. 3). Surveys (Rosa, Pisa & Timss) show that 13 to 15 year olds in developed countries do not believe that science is important for their careers (inGenious, 2014) and very few aspire to become scientists (ASPIRES, 2013). Furthermore, most students and families are not aware of what science can lead to in terms of careers (ASPIRES, 2013). The technological application produced in this project will provide guidance and counseling on VET careers in Europe, with the primary focus being placed on the partner countries, and would help to motivate users to take up a career in STEAM.
