Upskill Reskill (“the service”) is an AI-driven skills and careers information platform created and operated by HorizonAI (“we”, “us”, “our”). Safeguarding data privacy and rights is a fundamental principle core to Upskill Reskill service provision and we take it very seriously. We understand that privacy is vitally important to our online visitors, to education partners and training providers that utilise our service(s), or end-user students whose information we may process.
We are not responsible for the privacy, practices, content or applications or services that may be linked to or from our Service.
Upskill Reskill is an AI driven skills and careers platform that uses external data sources featuring a range of real-world information about careers, including the skills required to perform each role optimally. We use this skills data as a benchmark to identify the skills of our users, based on their career history. We can also understand the level of skill, from low to high, that was a requirement of each role, which allows us to interpret our users’ proficiency level of each skill. Using this information we can create a picture of a user’s employability skills and level of proficiency. Once this is known we can then measure and compare a user’s skills against those of every career in the data set to make recommendations for upskilling and reskilling to careers that have a similar skill set.
Career recommendations are dependent on user data, and are suggestions only Any user skill sets, skill values, skill levels, career-alignments, career-change suggestions, upskill and reskill and/or career or skill transfer suggestions, are generated in response to the data a user has input into Upskill Reskill by way of career history, career goals, experience, qualifications, education level, interests and/or any other self-assessment information and are suggestions only. Any career-training course suggestions are generated in response to the data a user has input into Upskill Reskill, and aligned by the colleges or training providers offering those training courses. The values are subject to change in response to data set updates and/or any changes in the assessment values as determined by the datasets themselves.
We are not responsible for any choices learners’ make following use of the service
Any user skill sets, skill values, skill levels, career-alignments, career-change suggestions, career upskill, reskill and/or career or skill transfer suggestions, and career-training course suggestions, are suggestions only and are based on user and client self-entered data, as compared against the data set values, and should only be considered as suggested Upskill or Reskill career and associated training course options. Any career or training course decisions a user makes based on any information received via Upskill Reskill, is the sole responsibility of that individual. Upskill Reskill expressly makes no guarantee to improve their skills, their career, or any future career security, or career benefits, using Upskill Reskill, and advises individuals to consult and discuss their options with college admissions officers, careers advisors and significant others, before making any major career decisions. Where a college or training provider has consulted with a learner and helped them to reach a decision you agree that Upskill Reskill has no liability in the making of those decisions, whether Upskill Reskill is used alone or in conjunction with any other career skills product.
HorizonAI, including all staff, directors, agents, and assignees, is not responsible for any adverse effects or consequences resulting from the use of Upskill Reskill or from any of the career and training options it suggests.
