Skills are the key to shaping a better future and central to the capacity of countries
and people to thrive in an increasingly interconnected and rapidly changing world.
Megatrends such as globalisation, technological advances and demographic change are
reshaping work and society, generating a growing demand for higher levels and new
sets of skills.
OECD Skills Strategy projects provide a strategic and comprehensive approach to assess
countries’ skills challenges and opportunities and help them build more effective
skills systems. The OECD works collaboratively with countries to develop policy responses
that are tailored to each country’s specific skills needs. The foundation of this
approach is the OECD Skills Strategy Framework, which allows for an exploration of
what countries can do better to 1) develop relevant skills over the life course; 2)
use skills effectively in work and in society; and 3) strengthen the governance of
the skills system.
This report, “OECD Skills Strategy Slovak Republic: Assessment and Recommendations”,
identifies opportunities and makes recommendations to strengthen the skills of youth,
reduce skills imbalances, foster greater participation in adult learning and strengthen
the use of skills in the workplace.
