Better skills policies help build economic resilience, boost employment and reinforce
social cohesion. The OECD Skills Strategy provides countries with a framework to analyse
their skills strengths and challenges. Each OECD Skills Strategy diagnostic report
reflects a set of skills challenges identified by broad stakeholder engagement and
OECD comparative evidence while offering concrete examples of how other countries
have tackled similar skills challenges. These reports tackle questions such as: How
can countries maximise their skills potential? How can they improve their performance
in developing relevant skills, activating skills supply and using skills effectively?
What is the benefit of a whole-of-government approach to skills? How can governments
build stronger partnerships with employers, trade unions, teachers and students to
deliver better skills outcomes? OECD Skills Strategy diagnostic reports provide new
insights into these questions and help identify the core components of successful
skills strategies. This report is part of the OECD’s ongoing work on building effective
national and local skills strategies.
