Our Skills Framework
Enginuity's Skills Framework offers a dynamic and adaptable skills taxonomy that integrates multiple data sources to unveil the intricate relationships between careers, skills, and employer-driven demand.
What is the Skills Framework
Understanding the Basics
Here at Enginuity, we're innovators in structuring skill definitions, or "taxonomies", for the engineering and advanced manufacturing sectors. We gather data from various sources to create a dynamic Skills Framework. This robust system effectively connects the dots between engineering jobs, the skills they require, and what employers are looking for
In building our Skills Framework, we first took a deep dive into existing skill taxonomies, like O*NET, ESCO, and SkillsFuture Singapore. We compared their strengths and weaknesses, focusing on aspects like the detail in skill descriptions, how well they identify new job types, and their usefulness in spotting skill gaps. While each system had its own unique benefits and limitations, we found that no single system met all our needs.
One of our missions is to provide insights on skills that are increasingly in demand, so businesses, sectors and government can plan ahead.
Enginuity’s focus on skills taxonomy has enabled it to develop a common language for the sector through its Skills Framework platform which brings together key information on a wide range of occupations, job roles, and work activities within manufacturing and engineering. This abundant resource is set to provide the sector with a better understanding of labour market trends, insights for future workforce planning and improved career information for individuals.
