Dynamic Skills Audit
The Dynamic Skills Audit has four components:
- Step 1. Skills Analysis: A systematic analysis of skills, certifications, and job performance requirements for each occupation or group of occupations. The audit draws data for the analysis from multiple sources, including O*NET, and places the results in a skills matrix.
- Step 2. Skills Matrix Development: The skills matrix compares skill needs in the labor market to the college’s courses and their content. This process involves instructors, members of industry advisory panels, and other stakeholders in evaluating and improving course content.
- Step 3. Assess and Verify with Partners: A formal assessment of course content and curricula, with recommendations for modifications, additions, and improvements.
- Step 4. Monitor Skills Demand: The college institutes ongoing monitoring of real-time labor market developments. This consists of regular reports (quarterly, biannually, or annually) on occupational skills and certifications data generated from a real-time LMI tool and delivered directly to instructors, employer advisory committees, or administrators.
