Skills Summary is a free online tool that captures the skills young people gain by participating in non-formal education, like youth work and volunteering, to build their confidence so that they can better communicate the value of these essential skills to future employers. Skills Summary helps young people assess their career skills and gives them a language around these skills – including communication skills, interpersonal skills and much more. Users build a strong CV, gather endorsements and develop job interview skills whilst using Skills Summary.
Skills Summary was launched in March 2019 and is the result of a collaborative project between the National Youth Council of Ireland, Accenture and SpunOut.ie. It is funded by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs and recognised as a measurement tool in the Youth Employability Initiative.
