endorseMe® is a digital work-readiness tool to help identify, develop and record real skills for the real world.
The endorseMe® system consists of a smartphone app for young people and an online portal for co-ordinators and endorsers.
endorseMe® is free to use in the Waikato – and is also available nationwide. Users need to be registered to access endorseMe® – contact us to get started!
endorseMe® gives young people the opportunity to be endorsed for their employability skills by their mentors, employers, teachers and others working in the community – and create a record of their skills, achievements and experiences.
endorseMe® is based on the New Zealand Employability Skills Framework – a set of skills or capabilities which New Zealand employers have identified as most essential.
These skills include:
- Positive attitude
- Team work
- Willingness to learn
- Thinking skills
Definition: work readiness;
“making sure our young people have the right skills, attitudes and preparation to help them find and keep a job.”
