This paper presents AI driven competency development service that provides students or persons already in labour market a way to match one’s competencies against existing or future competency requirements, and thus being valid employee or applicant. In information technology and communication (ITC) industry the technology advances are unexpected and moving mysterious ways causing significant mismatch between demand and supply in labour market. To some extent the mismatch is due to emergence of new technologies replacing the old ones. But on other hand, it is also due to lack of capability and capacity of educational system to provide up to date and spot on graduates. On the other hand, the operating model discussed in the paper is also a tool for giving input for forecasting future labour needs. Further, the service also serves as mid- and long-range planning apparatus for education provider when making decisions on what academic modules best serve the needs of society and individuals. The paper presents study based on data collected in development and use of the service during 2020 to 2022. According to the results, the service discussed in this paper could help the users to identify better their skills, creating an overall picture of competence as well as mapping out future opportunities. The paper is also normative as it provides guidelines for novel lifelong education scheme as well as how the presented process can be utilised in competency development.
