    Building Skills for All in Australia - Policy Insights from the Survey of Adult Skills

    Australia’s overall performance in the Survey of Adult Skills (PIAAC) ranges from average to very good. However, three million adults, representing one-fifth of the working age population, have low literacy and/or numeracy skills. Building Skills for All in Australia describes the characteristics of the low-skilled and discusses the consequences that low skills have on economic and social development for both individuals and Australian society. The review examines the strengths of the Australian skills system, highlighting the strong basic skills found in the migrant population, widespread proficiency in use of ICT and the positive role of workplaces in skills development. The study explores, moreover, the challenges facing the skills system and what can be done to enhance basic skills through education, training or other workplace measures. One of a series of studies on low basic skills, the review presents new analyses of PIAAC data and concludes with a series of policy recommendations. These include: increasing participation of women in STEM fields, addressing underperformance of post-secondary VET students and preventing drop-out, improving pre-apprenticeships, enhancing mathematics provision within secondary education and tackling poor access to childcare facilities for young mothers.

    Regards sur l'éducation 2017 - Les indicateurs de l'OCDE

    Regards sur l’éducation : Les indicateurs de l’OCDE est la publication de référence sur l’état de l’éducation dans le monde. Avec plus de 125 graphiques et 145 tableaux, et un corpus encore plus riche de données consultables sur notre base de données consacrée à l’éducation, Regards sur l’éducation 2017 présente des données clés sur : les résultats des établissements d’enseignement ; l’impact de l’apprentissage dans les différents pays ; les ressources financières et humaines investies dans l’éducation ; l’accès, la participation et la progression au sein des systèmes d’éducation ; l’environnement d’apprentissage ; et l’organisation scolaire.

    Avec un nouvel éclairage sur les domaines d’études, cette édition 2017 analyse notamment les tendances des taux de scolarisation dans le deuxième cycle de l’enseignement secondaire et l’enseignement tertiaire, la mobilité étudiante, et les débouchés professionnels des diplômes obtenus dans ces différents domaines. Elle présente en outre pour la première fois un chapitre entièrement consacré aux objectifs de développement durable (ODD) et permet donc de faire le point sur la progression des pays membres ou partenaires de l’OCDE sur la voie de la réalisation des cibles de ces ODD. Enfin, la section relative à la participation et à la progression au sein des systèmes d’éducation introduit deux nouveaux indicateurs : le premier sur le taux de réussite des élèves du deuxième cycle de l’enseignement secondaire, et le second sur les processus d’admission dans l’enseignement supérieur.

    Le rapport couvre l’ensemble des 35 pays membres de l’OCDE, ainsi qu’un certain nombre de pays partenaires (Afrique du Sud, Arabie saoudite, Argentine, Brésil, Chine, Colombie, Costa Rica, Fédération de Russie, Inde, Indonésie et Lituanie).

    Les fichiers ExcelTM qui ont servi à l’élaboration des tableaux et graphiques de Regards sur l’éducation sont disponibles via les liens StatLinks fournis tout au long de la publication.

    Combining OECD Survey of Adult Skills-based indicators with OECD Trade in Value Added (TiVA) data sheds light on the way skills and their distributions (at the country-industry level) relate to industry performance and to integration into global value chains.
