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.

This Knowledge Sharing Platform aims to strengthen the lifelong learning systems by sharing approaches, knowledge and experiences that governments, employers, workers and international organizations have found effective.
