Strengthening skills recognition systems: Recommendations for key stakeholders

The ILO has prepared this set of Recommendations on strengthening skills recognition systems, as countries seek strategies to enhance the employability of workers and the productivity of enterprises. The ILO conducted extensive research and case study analysis of the potential impact of such systems on labour markets, leading to the identification of lessons learned, good practices and key messages. They have been elaborated in this publication to provide guidance to key stakeholders, in particular ILO constituents, in the design implementation and or upgrading of skills recognition systems.

The set of Recommendations guides the reader through the processes: conducting a needs analysis; securing stakeholder support; making the system work; raising awareness; and measuring output and impact. It highlights key challenges, expectations of users and financing among other important issues.
