11/02/2019 - Digitalisation, globalisation and population ageing are having a profound impact on the type and quality of jobs that are available and the skills required to perform them. The extent to which individuals, firms and economies can reap the benefits of these changes will depend critically on the readiness of adult learning systems to help people develop and maintain relevant skills over their working careers.
A new OECD report, Getting Skills Right: Future-Ready Adult Learning Systems, comparing the readiness of each OECD country’s adult learning system to address future skill challenges, will be released at 11.00 Paris time/10.00 GMT on Wednesday 13 February 2019.
Country notes will also be available for Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain and the United Kingdom.
Requests to receive Getting Skills Right: Future-Ready Adult Learning Systems and country notes under embargo by e-mail ahead of release time should be sent to email@example.com. Journalists requesting an electronic version in advance of the release time agree to respect OECD embargo conditions. The report will be sent under embargo on Tuesday 12 February.
Working with over 100 countries, the OECD is a global policy forum that promotes policies to improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.
