Talent Matching Europe is an international partnership, which was co-funded by the EU’s Erasmus+ programme from November 2015 to August 2018. The project is focused on the development of the skills for a new role in Europe – the ‘vocational mentor’ who connects young talented people who are seeking work in the cultural and creative sector. The vocational mentor in the creative industries is an emerging role, encompassing careers advisers, youth workers, job brokers, coaches and trainers and others who support young people to benefit from the expanding opportunities in Europe’s growing creative industries.
TME open source platform offers a learning environment to provide anybody who is working in this field with a range of accessible materials and resources for their professional development.
The learning modules were piloted by organizations in 6 cities, and are mapped against the European Qualification Framework at levels 4 to 5. Learning Materials were developed by the six partners with mentors and mentees in Action Learning Sets. You can locate learning materials for specific Learning Outcomes for each Unit here. Many of the materials can be used at either Level 4 or Level 5, depending upon the level of the learner. TME is about “learning by doing”, so all the materials include practical supporting activities applying the learning to the context of your work.
