SKILLS FOR EMPLOYMENT: GLOBAL PUBLIC-PRIVATE KNOWLEDGE SHARING PLATFORM (KSP) [DATABASE]
Skills development is among the greatest challenges facing countries, enterprises and people all across the world today. It plays a vital role in promoting employment, economic growth, and inclusive societies.
Relevant skills training requires bridging the world of education and training to the world of work. Bringing together enterprises, labour, government and trainers at the local, industry and national levels ensures that training is relevant to the needs of businesses and labour markets and is accessible to young people and workers throughout their careers. This partnership can also ensure that skills is a driver of change – enabling innovation and technology adaptation, promoting investment, and creating more and better jobs.
The Global Public-Private Knowledge Sharing Platform on Skills for Employment (Global KSP) aims to help strengthen the links between education and training to productive and decent work by sharing approaches, knowledge and experiences that governments, employers, workers and international organizations have found effective in addressing these issues of common concern across the world.
An international partnership on skills for employment
Initiated by the International Labour Organization (ILO), the Global Public-Private Knowledge Sharing Platform on Skills for Employment benefits from the support and collaboration of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the World Bank.
