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.
