London Process

Euler in London looks closely at the gap between abilities individuals have to offer on the one hand, and demand for skills as structured by the labour market on the other. It starts with a thorough analysis of the world of work: who shapes the market of jobs and employment, how do they think it will change, how will talent be recognized and certified when traditional diploma’s and certificates will no longer work?

With a group of residents from North London, a trajectory is developed in which participants’ skills are unlocked –they will get a chance to show their skills- they are deepened –improved with help of experts– and finally their skill set will be transformed into a profile that works in the labour market.

March – April 2016: stakeholder analysis; May 2016 Sharing Analysis with wider public; September-May 2017: work in North London with local community; June 2017 sharing local work with wider public; September 2017: sharing local work with interntional public

Process approach:

With the preliminary analysis City Mine(d) creates buy-in from a wider group of stakeholder who can assess and support the profiles developed in the local area.
