LEED Programme (Local Economic and Employment Development)

LEED FLASH January 2010

 

Putting in place jobs that last

How to build quality employment during the recovery? LEED just released a new manual which sets out five principles for building sustainable employment for the future, each presenting concrete recommendations to both national policymakers and local practitioners, illustrated with case study examples:

  • Building a skilled and adaptable labour force
  • Better utilising skills
  • Supporting employment progression and careers definition
  • Fostering and anticipating new areas and growth
  • Putting in place good local governance at a time of public deficits

The manual includes an analysis of current local responses to the crisis. It is necessary reading for all people in exit strategies to the crisis.

LEED NEWS

LEED’s mission for 2011-15 will be to build more and better quality jobs

18-Dec-2009 

Economic prosperity and social cohesion depends on the ability of our economies to generate sufficient employment, with possibilities for progression and accessibility for all. LEED's governing board just adopted a new mandate that will help countries recover both economically and socially.

A cross-sector approach involving both labour market policy and economic development at the local level will be crucial to create sustainable employment. LEED is proud to a rare OECD body to have a cross-cutting constituency with countries represented by both labour & economic ministries.

Skills for entrepreneurship

16-Dec-2009

This new project examines the skills needed for entrepreneurship and how they are delivered by public policy through universities, vocational training organisations and other institutions. It will combine local case study work in selected participant localities with international assessments and comparisons.
