Middlesex University Skills and Education Planning Tool (MUSKET)

Developing software applications that will support employer engagement and workforce planning requirements.
Building on the recently established network of employers and other FE colleges, this project aims to support employer engagement and workforce planning requirements by providing a CRM based integrated view of employer based, professional and tertiary sector education. It will deliver a system that will map course descriptions from professional providers, employer specific training and skills to validated university programmes and will also support employer-led learner route planning.

Project Summary (derived from final report)

The project aimed to support employer engagement and workforce planning requirements by providing a tool intended to provide an integrated view of curriculum provision, both in employer based and higher education sectors of UK. This tool allows end users to import documents containing course descriptions from professional providers, employer specific training and HE, and provide a semantic similarity between the documents.
The work also investigated defining types of course information required to support employer-led learner route planning and the potential for exchange of this information (using a specification for the eXchange of Course-Related Information or ‘XCRI’) between various providers.

From report - Have developed a transform tool that enables MS Word documents’ export into the JISC XCRI-CAP standard; and another APEL mapping tool to support employer-led learner route planning by the mapping of an imported XCRI_CAP description (done by the transform tool) to HE and / or FE courses

Support the mapping of an imported XCRI_CAP description to HE and / or FE courses. Done through transform tool (allow non-technical specialists to import MS Word documents containing course descriptions from professional providers, employer specific training and HE and provide semantic markup to enable export into the JISC XCRI-CAP standard beyond simple XML editing.)

The project will deliver models (documented in standards such as UML and BPMN) that will span employer engagement and course information in a unified and integrated manner.
