Indicator Phrasing

English: number or % of supported professionals using newly acquired knowledge/ skills for ensuring social protection

French: nombre ou % de professionnels appuyés utilisant les connaissances/ compétences nouvellement acquises pour assurer la protection sociale

Czech: počet nebo % podpořených specialistů využívajících nově nabytých znalostí/ dovedností k zajištění sociální ochrany

What is its purpose?

The indicator assesses the number of professionals working within the social protection system who have acquired new skills/ knowledge from the provided assistance and apply it in their work.

How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data

Collect the following data by conducting individual interviews with a representative sample of the supported professionals:

  

RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTIONS (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)
Q1: Did you gain from [specify the provided assistance] any specific knowledge or skills which you use in your work?

A1: yes / no

 

(ask the following question only if the previous answer is YES)

 

Q2: Can you please tell me all the specific knowledge or skills you gained from the [specify the provided assistance] and use in your work?

A2: pre-define a list of the desired knowledge/skills (include also option “other – specify: …………………”)

 

(the following question is recommended but not mandatory)


Q3: How often have you used the [specify the knowledge or skills you are interested in]?

A3:

1) almost every day

2) a few times a week

3) a few times a month

4) once in a month

5) several times per year

6) once per year or less

 

Repeat Q3 for all the knowledge/skills where you need to know the frequency of their use.

 

Calculate the indicator’s value (in percentages) by dividing the number of professionals using any of the gained knowledge/ skills in their work by the total number of interviewed professionals and multiplying the result by 100.

Important Comments

1) Since using only one piece of knowledge/ skill might be a relatively poor result, considering setting a minimum number/ type of the gained knowledge/ skills which the professional has to use in her/his work in order to be considered as “using newly acquired knowledge/ skills”.
