The DAISS 2 project will seek to enhance employability amongst unemployed adults through the transfer of newly developed diagnostics that assess & develop soft skills for enterprise & entrepreneurship. It builds on a previous LdV Transfer of Innovation that has successfully transferred soft skills diagnostics for job matching to 6 EU countries
DAISS 2 has been developed in response to growing employer demand for enterprise skills amongst the workforce & an increasing emphasis on & need for entrepreneurial skills for self-employment/business start-ups across Europe. Our experience & research has shown that many adults do have untapped enterprise potential but lack the confidence & skills to further their ambitions.
Aims & Objectives
The aim of the project is to transfer a significant & innovative intervention in the diagnosis & development of enterprise skills within employability programmes, thereby supporting:
local labour market demands from employers for a more enterprising workforce
the drive for increased self-employment/business start-up.
We will transfer & pilot new elements of the Diagnostic that root out & develop aptitude for enterprise, expanding the mechanisms used in VET for this type of assessment. This process will provide VET Trainers with a clearer understanding of an individual’s entrepreneurial approaches, attributes & learning styles in order to better personalise teaching & coaching methods.
The project consortium has been chosen as a strong coalition of like-minded professional organisations with expertise in employability, workforce development, enterprise education, pedagogy & VET for adults learners. 4 members of the consortium are current partners, selected on the professionalism of their contribution, their enthusiasm, commitment & relevant expertise. We have introduced 2 new partners from Spain & Cyprus who will broaden participation & add a range of relevant skills & experience to the consortium.
12 VET Institutions with trained practitioners in Enterprise Psychometrics
60 VET Trainers from 6 EU countries trained to become effective practitioners able to work productively with target groups
600 unemployed adults receiving Enterprise Reports, detailed feedback & on-going coaching support in line with their preferred learning styles.
A comprehensive Practitioner toolkit for employability trainers
Evaluation reports & case studies detailing a series of contrasting implementations & exemplars of best practice.
An improved range of approaches to assessing & developing skills enterprise/entrepreneurial skills
More VET trainers adapting programmes to suit the learning preferences of individuals
Increased number of VET programmes targeted on enterprise/entrepreneurship
Improved self-awareness of enterprise potential among target groups
Reduction in local unemployment with more individuals entering self employment/business start-ups
DAISS 2 comprises 7 work packages, each with identified tasks, timelines, resource and budget allocations. The lead partner for each work package has been chosen for their experience and expertise in their chosen area and will take responsibility for the planning deliverables, results and valorisation. The work packages are segmented into manageable stages with tasks fully described and allocated according to the skills sets of individuals within different organisations.
Work packages have been designed and developed to ensure maximum collaboration between all partners, particularly with respect to needs analyses, product adaptation & translation, transfer and development.
Briefly they comprise: Project Management, Comparative Needs Analyses, Product adaptation and transfer, Product piloting, Evaluation and Valorisation.
The project will support VET Trainers encouraging a more enterprising approach to employability. They will be trained to use and interpret the results of the diagnostic for the benefit of the adult job seekers they support. Particular emphasis will be given to identifying the skills and competences required for business starts up using the Tool as a guide to developing appropriate and personalised learning programmes. It is anticipated that a minimum of 700 unemployed adults will benefit from the intervention.

Product information Expected Results: The consortium will produce a comprehensive Need Analysis report with input from all partner countries. This will comprise both primary and secondary research focused on the assessment and development of soft skills for Enterprise across a broad EU spectrum. Based on these findings, the Diagnostic will be adapted and transferred to all partners in each of the 6 languages. It will be enhanced by a Practitioner Toolkit and Enterprise Coaching guide translated as required. The team will also source and develop supplementary teaching and learning materials for upload onto the project website. Further results and recommendations from piloting will be disseminated through regular newsletters, social media and events, keeping our partners, stakeholders and interested parties informed of project progress and key milestones. At project closure we will publish a full report detailing the impact of DAISS 2 and our plans for sustainability.
