We have worked with partners from across Europe on the SEED project, producing online learning materials to increase the employability of young adults.
The SEED project ran for two years from September 2015 to August 2017. It set out to identify competencies that are essential for young adults to be effective e-workers, and went on to produce assessment and training materials to support development in these areas. The resources produced are online, meaning that learners can access them wherever they are – no need to attend a classroom session! This location-independence ties in with the nature of e-work and offers young adults flexibility as to how they learn.
Having said that, we know that when you’re looking for work or trying to get back to college, it’s hard on your own and a little extra help goes a long way. We are part of a network of organisations supporting young people who are not in employment, education or training, so if you’re looking for some help, why not have a look at our network page
SEED project outputs
Over the course of the project, partners have worked closely to:
- Undertake research into the competencies valued by employers in sectors particularly relevant to e-workers, and produce a report detailing the findings
- Create an online competency assessment toolkit for young adults
- Develop online e-learning modules aimed at young adults, in 12 competency areas that are key for e-workers
- Produce an online e-learning module for tutors branching into e-tutoring
- Pilot test the project materials with members of the target groups (young people and e-tutors)
- Produce a guide to Intellectual Property Rights for e-learning professionals
The closing conference for the project was held on 18th August 2017, in Madeira, Portugal – see our blog post for more details.

At GuideHub, we intend to build on the resources that have been developed through the SEED project. Please see our e-learning page for more information.
