FLiP is an online platform that lets young people who are not in employment or training build a personal profile based on feedback from their peers. This helps them communicate their strengths more effectively and connect with relevant opportunities.
The platform is aimed young people aged 16 to 19 who have few or no qualifications and are struggling to find employment or training.
Young people use FLiP to rate their abilities across a number of key areas, such as reliability, organisation and decision making skills. Using social media channels, such as Facebook and email, they can also invite family, friends and mentors to rate them as well.
FLiP anonymously aggregates the results of this crowd-sourced assessment and a builds a private dashboard where young people can compare results and highlight their strengths. Young people can then publish and download their online public profile to accompany their CV or application form, and prepare for potential interviews.
Employers can upload work opportunities and tag each position with the qualities they are looking for. FLiP will then recommend opportunities to young people that they may not have considered or had the confidence to apply for.
