The work focuses on five challenges, with initial direct financial support provided by the European Commission and Scotland (UK) and will be developed and pursued through the following steps:
The main focus of the analysis will be on work placements which allow students to learn through work, develop new technical and social skills (e.g. internships, end of study projects with employers). The precise focus of the study, however, will be agreed with sponsoring countries.
A discussion paper will draw together the initial analytical work, laying out the key policy challenges, synthesising relevant research evidence, and identifying policy levers. Countries will be invited to review the discussion paper during the 2018 international workshop.
All OECD countries will be invited to attend an international workshop in 2018. The purpose of the workshop will be to review the initial analytical work summarised in the discussion paper; provide an opportunity for countries to augment it with experience and with potential policy solutions and innovations; and enable countries to learn directly from each other’s experience.
The report, to be published in 2019, will integrate analytical work and country experience gathered through the project. The report will provide in-depth analysis of key policy challenges, distil policy messages and address implementation issues, and will be rich in country examples of promising and innovative practices.
