Adult learning

The ELS Skills Team of the OECD collects and analyses data to assess the future-readiness of countries’ adult learning systems and provides policy directions and international good practice examples to improve their systems performance. As part of this work, the Skills Team performs country reviews, shares good practices, provides implementation support, and develops data and tools. Find below in what areas we are currently working and a selection of our publications.
