Changing skills needs

The current megatrends, and particularly digitalisation and the transition to a low-carbon economy, imply rapid changes in the skills needed to adapt and succeed in a constantly evolving labour market. The ELS Skills Team of the OECD helps countries and individuals prepare for these changes by measuring and forecasting skills needs. Some of our work in this area includes the Survey of Adult Skills (PIAAC), thematic analysis on the links between skills and key labour market outcomes, and the assessment of the impact of digitalisation and the transition to a low-carbon economy on skills needs and adult-learning systems.
