Published on

Small and micro enterprises have a decreasing participation in vocational education and training. There is a real need to engage them in developing a positive attitude towards training. The BOOST (Business perfOrmance imprOvement through individual employee Skills Training) project will integrate outcomes from two previous projects (BECOME and ROLE), in order to develop associated methodologies and tools. These will enable enterprises with less than 20 employees to identify their critical business needs and then also to find appropriate and customized learning resources to meet these needs. Our solution provides predefined Personal Learning Environments for 3 different roles. These environments are customizable and should be further developed towards personalization and adaptivity.
