No more list fatigue

Finding time for professional development is already a challenge for busy library professionals; we understand that you want to save time searching for the right training opportunities. That’s where Skilltype’s Recommendation Engine comes into play.

  • Designed with your Team’s time and needs in mind.
  • Sophisticated engine that curates a weekly list of five on-demand training opportunities tailored to each user’s skills and interests.
  • No more sifting through endless lists or questioning the relevance of a particular training session.

We go beyond just on-demand resources to provide you with recommendations

Our Recommendation Engine also identifies multiple upcoming training events that align with your staff’s skills and career aspirations. So, instead of just reactive learning, your team gets a proactive growth plan. Our Recommendation Engine ensures that your staff doesn’t miss out on golden opportunities that can propel their careers to new heights. Whether they’re looking to refine existing skills, learn something entirely new, or simply network with like-minded professionals, the engine offers a tailored roadmap for each member of your team.

  • Recommendations range from online webinars to in-person conferences, providing diverse opportunities for learning and networking.
  • Staff can choose the format that best suits their learning style and schedule while expanding their professional network.
