Given the opportunity to volunteer on the UKCES Project

March 18, 2012

Yesterday, I had heard more about the mystery government hack day project in an email in relation to the Rewired Hack Group.

In turns out after reading the email several times that it is a UK Commission for Employment and Skills project with emphasis in helping out the database. Unsure in what it entails, it said that the project will be involved in a feasibility study of a careers Labour Market Information database. My guess is that it handles part of the scheme in perhaps finding jobs for the youth or unemployment although the email doesnt say anything about this. My inkling is that it is! That’s great to hear that I could be working on a potential project for the government in defining future labour market infromation of some sort!

As it seems its in its early days of the database as further information says it is to test the suitability/accessibility of the database in terms of its infrastructure and format.

And the database API would be ready for Monday which is so close to the hack day which is the very next day, so exposure is very minimal indeed!

I hope to post more information once I receive more!!
