This innovative platform facilitates the re- and upskilling of individuals for in-demand professions, bridging the gap between current competencies and the skills of tomorrow.

Our Unique Selling Proposition (USP) & Services:
Komensky stands out for its emphasis on skills-based learning. Our platform is powered by an adaptive skills engine, which uses a robust skill framework to make informed decisions and recommendations. It maps specific job descriptions to skills, levels, knowledge, abilities, and assessment criteria. This allows employees to identify their skill gaps and receive personalized recommendations to help them and the organization develop and grow.

Our comprehensive service offering covers a wide range of learning needs. From content curation, creation, and conversion to learning management, automation, and complex reporting, we provide solutions that support sustainable learning strategies and internal skill mobility.

Relationship with the Telecom Sector & Partnerships:
In the telecom sector, Komensky plays a pivotal role in helping companies adapt to the rapidly evolving technological landscape. By providing tailored educational solutions, we empower telecom companies to ensure their workforces stay competitive and innovative.

Our partnerships extend to reputable libraries like GoodHabitz and LinkedIn Learning. We also integrate all proprietary content and use open source content relevant for a set skill set, enabling us to provide a diverse range of learning resources.

Our Journey to the Current Stage of Development & Future Plans:
Our development is a result of extensive research, experience, and collaborations. We’ve interviewed thousands of individuals, advised dozens of companies, and delved deep into learning psychology and technology. This wealth of knowledge and expertise has helped us refine our platform to optimally meet the needs of our clients.

In light of the European Year of Skills in 2023, we plan to further elaborate on skill-based learning for all, solidifying our commitment to creating a future-proof workforce.

Our Inspiration, Recognition, and Awards:
Inspired by the wisdom of Jan Amos Komensky — ‘You live, you learn’ — we established Komensky with a vision to revolutionize learning and development in the professional sphere. Our efforts have been recognized by reputable organizations. We’ve been featured on RedThread Research‘s Skill Tech Vendor Map and have been nominated for two Learning Pool awards. We’re proud to have won the Extraordinary Impact Award 2022 from Learning Pool, a testament to our dedication and effectiveness in the EdTech sector.
