OECD Skills Strategies


Helping people to develop and use skills effectively is crucial for people and countries to thrive in an increasingly interconnected and rapidly changing world. Fully recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic will also require countries to reskill workers who have lost their jobs and to adopt new strategies for making effective use of people’s skills in and out of the workplace.

In helping to achieve this, the OECD assesses skills challenges and opportunities, and looks to help countries to build more effective skills systems through tailor-made policy responses, while using the OECD Skills Strategy framework as its foundation.
