Unlike earlier PISA reports, the 2015 PISA report (Volume I and Volume II) highlights differences in sample coverage – how many students were eligible to participate in PISA – between countries.
This joint OECD-ILO publication provides guidance on how local and regional governments can foster business-education partnerships in apprenticeship programmes and other types of work-based learning, drawing on case studies across nine countries. There has been increasing interest in apprenticeships which combine on the job training with classroom-based study, providing a smooth transition from school to work. There are benefits to both individuals and employers from participating in apprenticeships, including increased productivity and job quality. Successful implementation is contingent on having a high level of employer engagement at the local level, notably in the design, development and delivery of programmes.
Join Andreas Schleicher, Director of the OECD Directorate for Education and Skills, and Éric Charbonnier, analyst in the Early Childhood and Schools division, who will present the main findings from Starting Strong V - Transitions from Early Childhood Education and Care to Primary Education.

Education has transformed over the last 20 years from being a means to an end to becoming a change agent on the battleground to improve the life chances of all individuals, regardless of where they live, their economic status, gender, ability or religious persuasion. Education has been revitalised as the gateway for equal opportunity.
Why is it that even highly educated migrants to OECD countries are less likely to be employed than native-born adults who are similarly educated, even if the migrants have lived in their host country for several years?
Many education systems around the world are looking for ways to give parents more choice over where they send their children to school.
I am delighted to launch the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2015 Results: Students’ Financial Literacy. We are honoured to be joined by Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands ─ a global champion of financial literacy.
Environ un quart des élèves des 15 pays et économies* qui ont participé à la dernière évaluation de la culture financière menée dans le cadre du Programme international pour le suivi des acquis des élèves (PISA) de l’OCDE sont incapables de prendre la moindre décision relative aux dépenses courantes, et ils ne sont qu’un sur dix à comprendre des concepts complexes tels que l’impôt sur le revenu.
