Recommendation The e-Jobs Observatory website is nice looking website with lots of interesting information for everyone interested in eSkills and quality of eSkills training. Besides the e-Job partners there is a large and strong group of e-Job supporters.
Comments The e-Job Observatory does not provide insight in the learning outcomes of qualified training, nor provides a link between training and the e-competence framework. None of the key players in the market of Industry Based Training and Certification of eSkills seems to have joined this initiative.
