In co-operation with the World Association of Public Employment Services and the URBACT programme

Objectives

Organised as part of the programme of activities of the OECD LEED Trento Centre and Venice office and LEED Forum, the capacity building seminar on Designing Strong Local Strategies for Better Jobs and Skills offered an opportunity to learn from the latest OECD research on the key elements of successful local skills and employment strategies.

At the end of this seminar participants:

  • Explored key dimensions of developing a successful employment and skills strategy;
  • Were better informed on international examples of good practice
  • Considered the challenges and trade-offs associated with developing and delivering local employment and skills strategies;
  • Established networks and links with other international practitioners that they could draw upon in the future.

     

Participants' profile

The seminar was targeted at policy makers and practitioners responsible for design and implementation of sub-national employment and skills strategies in OECD countries, including people responsible for designing city-level strategies and advisors to mayors, heads of employment and education departments in city or regional administrations, heads of regional or local employment offices, and city and regional labour observatories.

Participation was free of charge. Participants were expected to cover their own accommodation and travel costs.
