Skills beyond school

Country Studies

 

 

The OECD has undertaken policy reviews of vocational education and training in 16 countries as part of the Learning for Jobs thematic review of initial VET.  The reviews for Australia, Austria, Belgium (Flanders), the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Korea, Mexico, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom (England and Wales), and the United States (South Carolina and Texas) as well as the special studies conducted in Chile and the People’s Republic of China, are available below.  The final comparative report Learning for Jobs  was published in 2010. 

As part of the Skills beyond School review full country policy reviews are being conducted in Austria, Denmark, Egypt, Germany, Israel, Korea, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom (England), and the United States (with case studies of Florida, Maryland and Washington State). Abbreviated exercises leading to a short OECD country commentary will be undertaken in Belgium (Flanders), Canada, Iceland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, and in Northern Ireland and Scotland in the United Kingdom. Background reports will be prepared in all these countries, and in France and Hungary. The exercise as a whole will therefore yield a wide range of published country reports and working papers, which will be published on this page as they become available.
