Descripción
This study analyses for the first time the effects that the IPMA Project Management Certification has on employability. This analysis started with a participative process in which various groups of experts who are involved in the certification of people were consulted. A personal interview was carried out amongst 46 professionals, all of whom work in certifying bodies, training institutions, the civil service, and international organisations. A survey was carried out amongst 39 professional who are IPMA certified and 1,010 companies were surveyed across Spain. The results show that the IPMA certification emerges as a powerful tool for improving employability. The effects are demonstrated across two complementary aspects: internal company aspects (internal employability) and external aspects relating to the labour market (external employability). Furthermore, it highlights the potential of this model of professional certification as a tool for improving the link between training and employability. However, there is still some way to go and the study detected a lack of information regarding accreditation processes as well as the need for better integration and coordination between the different actors. Finally, by compiling the different agents¿ opinions, a series of measures emerge for improving the accreditation processes as an employability tool and increasing the mutual learning between public and private actors.
