    Descriptive info: .. e-scc.. org.. Home.. e-SCC.. Thank you for visiting the new e-SCC, and as you can see we are still very much a work in progress.. While we re very much dedicated to providing the highest-quality information and resources possible, we are unfortunately sidelined far too often with unavoidable tangential concerns.. Never fear, loyal readers, for we are currently nearing the completion of the research and development phase of the second version of this website.. Hopefully all of the awkward and unhelpful language will be edited and re-written to at least a junior high reading level, and the resources will more accurately reflect the realities of the modern e-skills world (though keeping it truly up-to-date on a day-to-day basis may be a goal always just out of reach!).. Here at e-SCC, we cover e-skills, those specific administrative skills that directly ties in with the internet.. We appreciate the hard work of our staffers.. Aside from showing of our gratitude by occasionally sending gorgeous gift baskets to everyone, we also will go above and beyond to assist our.. staffers if they need it.. For instance, more than a year ago, one of our staffers suffered a snowboarding accident that so injured his spine he was not even able to do work from home at his computer.. We asked a friend who is a.. social security disability lawyer.. to look over his case and initial application for social security disability.. Statistically more than 60% of initial social security disability claims are rejected even with the help of a lawyer or advocate.. When our staffer was declined benefits, he asked this social security disability lawyer to help him  ...   in today s job market the greater your chances are in landing that better job.. Let s take a measured look at some of these specific skills:.. Data Entry.. Many jobs require some degree of data entry..

  • Title: e-Skills Competences Consortium » About
    Descriptive info: The European Alliance on Skills for Employability.. This includes, but is not limited to all skill-sets, all needs and a wide variety of opportunities.. It is important to build a skill or skills to have so that you can be valued as a specialized worker.. A skilled laborer rather than just a worker.. Citizens with good jobs have access to much more than a paycheck and reliable collateral.. Employment stability is more than the ability to receive a cash advance, although that is a benefit we should not overlook.. While payday loans are often exploitative and seen exist in the margins of society, access to funds based on employment is often the only access to fast cash available to working people who have no assets.. So skilled employment is the key to stability on many fronts, and opens doors significantly beyond the cash received for labor performed.. Just to give you an idea, this can mean working for any market in production, any technician job such as industrial designers, car mechanics, IT workers, surface/ textile designers, health promoters and much more.. If you look in any market place- an example would be the apparel market and specifically sportswear such as the creation of.. North Face Osito Fleece Jackets.. , the number of people with specialized skills that are involved in the creation of a North Face Osito fleece jacket is astounding.. According to the Northface web site the creation of most of their products starts with the suggestions, recommendations and new equipment ideas by world-class athletes which provides the inspiration and challenges that drive the research and  ...   particularly on young unemployed and older workers that have lower employability chances or are at risk of loosing their jobs because they do not have the right skills.. In many respects, there is nothing more important than addressing these issues of societal need.. • To build upon already existing education, training and community programmes, to further extend them and develop synergies across all key stakeholders to deliver higher employ ability opportunities and more positive impact to the end beneficiaries and help make Europe more competitive.. Thus creating more revenue and more jobs.. • To jointly raise awareness on the importance of delivering 21st Century Skills for Employability in Europe and to help European Citizens realise their potential.. To this end, Alliance members will co-brand the initiative, share visibility as appropriate and leverage this single message for maximum impact.. To enable synergy partnerships and enhanced cooperation between Alliance members, pilot pools or clusters per focus country will be established among partners (with one or two members as Country Rapporteur).. Building clusters is important to allow more opportunities.. These Country Clusters will operate in an open mode and in associative partnership with local technology platforms or other multi-stakeholders whether they be small or large able to take part in the Alliance efforts if they have the know-how and are willing to pool this knowledge.. The more knowledge we can bring together individually will make the pool more knowledgeable, and there for more desirable.. The initiative will start rolling out concrete actions with a focus on the following four countries:.. • Belgium.. • Germany.. • Poland.. • Portugal.. • UK..

  • Title: e-Skills Competences Consortium » Structure
    Descriptive info: Governance Structure and Other Information of Interest.. What is e-Skills competency? Competency is a demonstrated ability to apply skills, knowledge, and attitudes to achieve observable results.. One might say that competences are holistic concepts, whereas skills are precise and definable abilities.. Of course, specific skills are necessary for any competent work performance, but the requirements for e-skills change very quickly.. For example, a database developer may be certified in a current database product but has e-Skills competency in a variety of different skills.. An example: one of our members help develop an e-commerce website for a company that arranges individual and corporate private jet charter flights and air charter service.. The development of the site required not only his technical skills in web design, coding, seo etc.. It also required him to show courage, eagerness and judgment in making his choices.. The coding requirements to create this type of e-commerce site were complicated since there are numerous locations that needed to be listed not only all over the US, but also in other countries that service.. private jet charters.. Data bases that could easily be updated if another fixed-base operator (FBO) was added or removed from a particular airport were needed.. Secondarily linked pages describing the various aircraft available at each airport needed to be built with an easy tool that could be used by a non web master person.. A secure Request a Quote for Any Private Jet Charter was required.. And the list for tools and functionality went on and on.. The great  ...   and local organizations, and businesses.. There is a need to identify common challenges, share examples of best practices such as tackling e-skills shortages, and then set out a tentative road map by enhancing supply and quality of tech professionals with the aim of maturing the e-Skills competency in the longer term.. The Alliance is managed and operated under the umbrella of the e-Skills Competences Consortium (eSCC).. The eSCC Executive Committee is no land locked entity, nor do they have a home office.. These members are often going back and forth from place to place.. while working.. They are assisted by an Alliance Management Committee (AMC) in charge of the implementation and day-to-day management of the Alliance.. The AMC is limited to the founding members of the Alliance with 2 year rotation/re-election by members.. The AMC is composed as follows:.. • Antonio Herrera (Cisco, eSCC/AMC chair).. • Steven Gilroy (CompTIA).. • Dudley Dolan (ECDL).. • Michiel van der Voort (Exin).. • Elena Bonfiglioli (Microsoft).. • Johanna Tzanidaki (Randstad).. • Peter Baker (State Street).. • Hugo Lueders (eSCC Secretariat).. A cost-free Alliance Consultation Group has been created to represent reference organizations who are key stakeholders for the Alliance and its core activities.. Membership in the Consultation Group is upon invitation only and after agreement by the AMC.. For more information regarding membership please contact us.. We strive to function as democratically as possible.. Our voting structure and electing structure aims to be fair and logical.. Members are expected to respect each other as well as the organizations policies..

  • Title: e-Skills Competences Consortium » Approach
    Descriptive info: The eSCC pursues agreements on the endorsement of industry and other non-formal certifications within the framework of multiple stake holder partnerships bringing together industry, governments and training institutions, in order to ensure and secure the long-term success of the solutions proposed.. eSCC activities include:.. • Collection and dissemination of international references and model examples of e-skills certification public recognition and/or endorsement.. • Review and benchmarking of governmental national strategies in the area of recognition (tasks, envisaged changes, etc.. ) including the role of other agencies, ministries and other stakeholder organizations at a national level.. • Address disparities that exist among regulatory bodies.. This concept covers many unrelated areas.. For example, eSCC would like to avoid the type of bad publicity engendered by the hoopla raised concerning the legal status and the recent exodus of certain currencies from debt laden countries.. • Dialogue with relevant policymakers within EU Institutions and at EU Member State level, e.. g.. regarding the roles and functions of public authorities relating to formal recognition and/or endorsement of private sector e-skills certifications.. • Proposing changes to the legal, institutional and organizational framework necessary for the coordinated recognition and/or endorsement of industry  ...   Being aware and conscious of decisions involving the design, branding and over all look of your business.. This includes logos, pamphlets, web design, promo materials, and any products.. It is far better to spend the time hiring the appropriate specialists in e-businesses who can create the overarching look of your business, along with web designers, and seo experts who will ensure your e-business site is compliant with the major search engines regulations than not.. Awareness is one of the important keys for success.. Relations between partners as well as investors are important to maintain and require a constant supervision and oversight by your PR division as well as the top executives.. Delegation to knowledgeable and responsible managers will help ensure the long-term success of the solutions proposed by the eSCC.. Multinational e-business is rapidly changing as technologies we couldn t even imagine ten years ago now seem common place.. Staying on the cutting edge of this new technology is extremely important, if you want to stay ahead of the competition, both nationally and internationally.. ESCC remains committed to disseminating current trends and informing, as well as suggesting, the best options for your e- business..

  • Title: e-Skills Competences Consortium » Moving Forward
    Descriptive info: It is absolutely necessary that we as a people continue to improve upon what has been built for us by mankind before us.. We have, century after century, built our knowledge upon what was passed down to us.. Every generation being able to add a little more until in recent times we have seen the exponential growth we do today.. With the advent of the internet it is very easy to see what is going on everywhere.. For instance, my friend,.. Faye Kotsis.. who is infamously known as a major player in a real estate scandal involving employing aggressive sales tactics and by using a labyrinth of companies with each playing apparently independent roles, including financial adviser, property vendor and even financier to scam investors out of over millions of dollars a year.. The information spread out on the internet.. The positive forward result was a public awareness of such schemes and the subsequent legislation to curb such abuses.. On another note, we are on the verge of some major leaps forward, if we can make it through the possibility of mankind destroying itself before that can happen.. If you are not moving forward you are moving backward, that is the old adage.. Consider for a moment if we as a people, altogether stopped trying to improve  ...   as well.. We have so many people who fit in all different casts.. They all fill their own individual role hopefully they will try their best to move society in the right direction the best they can.. There are those of us who choose to travel another path.. Those of us that can not seem to see past our petty differences, either religious or political, to the bigger picture.. They are not helping us to usher in a new era of peace harmony which will result in a new age of human development.. Instead these people are fighting amongst themselves creating tension drama which under the worst of circumstances could easily end our race.. We could be wiped from the face of the earth in the blink of an eye if we are not extremely careful.. We have created the technology already which if placed in the wrong hands could be the instrument of our demise.. There are way too many weapons of mass destruction there are not even any plans to begin destroying them totally.. If we are to survive we have to begin monitoring disassembling all of these devices.. Then we need to find a way to destroy or safely use the fuel for those devices.. Until we can do this we are still in danger..

  • Title: e-Skills Competences Consortium » E-Skills Simulation Software
    Descriptive info: There are many simulation software packages out there in the marketplace that tests and improves e-skills (such as EASy Simulation or SIMple).. Up to now, most focused on error correction by using a database that stored the most common errors in order to recognize them as they occurred.. SKILLS uses and entirely different approach, whereby the system learns about the user and applies this knowledge to assist in skill building..
