The futures of work: what education can and can’t do

Background paper for the Futures of Education initiative

This background paper argues that while education cannot solve most problems concerning the futures of work, there can be no solution to these problems without quality, enduring institutions supporting education and occupational coherence in the labour market. Hence, its core focus is on ‘bringing institutions back in’ to the policy focus: building strong, enduring education institutions as the anchor for quality and innovation in the education domain.
