TIPEIL web-based platform has been realised to support the application of the Digital Portfolio Model, as a tool and a methodology that the project aims at divulging and improving, with the direct contribution of field operators and experts. Introduction
The research context to which TIPEIL project refers is the valorisation of knowledge and capabilities that young and adults, employed or unemployed, achieved within non formal and informal learning contexts, so as to foster their placement or re-placement in the labour market. Introduction
TIPEIL offers to all organisations and professionals that will contribute to the development of the Digital Portfolio Model, the chance to share problems and solutions with other European subjects. The datum from which we start is to focus the attention on individual learning, a knowledge implying skills, abilities and capabilities, potential or acquired, that must be read, understood and valorised, in order to be able to help persons to find, create or re-create their personal employment and living path. Introduction
Therefore, this platform and the methodology we propose are addressed in particular to organisations and operators (tutors, trainers, counsellors, etc.) providing guidance, counselling, training and employment services to subjects – young and adults – that, for different reasons, are at risk of socio-economic exclusion.
