Audit Your Skills

Using Lightcast’s Library of Skills, which contains over 30,000 skills terms relating to the world of work, Skill Sync enables you to audit your courses and modules by extracting their skills content. All you need to do is copy and paste your course and module descriptors into the tool, and it will instantly highlight every skill that has relevance to the labour market. It's that simple.

Identify Associated Jobs

The skills terms identified by Skill Sync are derived from our database of millions of employer job postings. This means that having highlighted the skills learned on a course, we can plug these back into that data to identify the jobs they relate to. Skill Sync therefore becomes a hugely powerful tool, enabling you to see the graduate jobs your courses relate to at the click of a button.Skill Sync allows you to export the results of your inquiry, giving you a simple way of recording skills and associated jobs for each course and module. This can be used to inspire your Insight, Course and Employability Teams to engage in further analysis, including how well your courses and modules reflect graduate demand, and how you can improve graduate employability.
