“Skills have a profound relationship with economic and social outcomes... [They are] key to tackling inequality and promoting social mobility.”
- Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (2012).
In countries around the world, youth unemployment and skills gaps are threatening the growth of economies, the stability of societies and the wellbeing and prospects of individuals. We build trust and international opportunities that support efforts to enhance the skills and employability of young people.
Our work in skills and employability encourages closer links between education, employers and policy makers in the UK and worldwide to enhance the employability of individuals, particularly young people and disadvantaged groups.
