OECD Skills Strategy Latvia
Assessment and Recommendations
Skills are the key to shaping a better future. Skills are central to the capacity
of countries and people to thrive in an increasingly interconnected and rapidly changing
world. Megatrends such as globalisation, technological advance and demographic change
are reshaping work and society, generating a growing demand for higher levels of skills,
as well as new sets of skills.
OECD Skills Strategy projects provide a strategic and comprehensive approach to assess
countries’ skills challenges and opportunities, and 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 i) develop relevant skills over the life course, ii) use skills effectively
in work and in society, and iii) strengthen the governance of the skills system.
This report OECD Skills Strategy Latvia: Assessment and Recommendations identifies
opportunities and makes recommendations to strengthen the skills outcomes of students,
foster a culture of lifelong learning, reduce skills imbalances in the labour market,
and strengthen the governance of the skills system.
