In Partnership with Cibervoluntarios
Last 16th and 17th of June 2021 the third and last pilot to test NADINE platform took place in Barcelona. The test started on the 16th at 10:00am and lasted 2 hours. 5 migrants of different nationalities had the opportunity to test the platform in real time, each with a computer from different desks.
At 10:00am the video call started with the head of Research and Social Innovation Processes from Cibervoluntarios, who was there as a support figure to guide and help them in case any doubts arose during the test. Her role was also to write down any faults the platform would present, so that she could then pass this information to the IT experts in Greece, who would fix the faults throughout the month of July.
On the second day, the other 5 migrants to test the platform were divided into 2 groups – one of 3 led by the head of RSIP and another of 2 led by one of the Projects and Volunteers Managers at Cibervoluntarios. The rest of the process was the same, a 2-hour test with the corresponding support from Cibervoluntarios team members.
Both days we could also rely on the collaboration of CCP technical volunteers, who were there in person to quickly solve possible issues that could come up.
The platform is accessible from the following countries: Italy, Spain, Greece and Belgium. And is available in 6 languages: English, Spanish, French, Greek, Arabic and Persian.
NADINE consists of 5 sections: Skills – here you can explain what you are good at and your experience. Desires – here you will express what you are looking for and what you cherish the most. Opportunities – through this option you can explore employment opportunities with careers database, etc. Training – with this option you can access different training courses offered by NADINE. And finally, the CV section.
The skills section is very complete. Each user will be asked about their work experience, unpaid work (such as volunteer experiences), education, languages, digital skills and personal skills, which are assessed through games such as Tetris, 2048 or a series of 13 quizzes.
At the end of each section, there is a “give us a feedback” option, where participants rate the section according to how useful and clear they found it. The 10 participants will have access to the platform until the 9th of July, and this new platform is expected to be submitted to the European Commission between September and October 2021.
Soon many migrants, including refugees and asylum seekers, will have the opportunity to make use of this fantastic tool!
