This study examines the way in which institutional arrangements for the delivery of IVET have changed in response to shifts in skills demand.

Although these arrangements vary across countries, it is possible to identify common trends over time, such as institutional hybridisation, the blurring of boundaries between IVET and general education. Despite this development, IVET has been able to retain a distinct identity, which is attractive to learners and has the support of key labour market actors. This reflects IVET’s adaptability and resilience in the face of change.

Building on a Europe-wide survey of VET providers and in-depth national case studies, the study delivers a timely update of, and insight into, the continually changing IVET landscape. Results show increasing similarities in how countries configure their IVET systems. This is evident in the broadening of IVET curricula, the prominence given to the work-based learning pathway, as well as the growing importance attached to local and regional autonomy.

Which digital skills do you really need?
Date de publication: 01 sept. 2021

Policymakers consider digital skills to be a top priority for investment. They are seen as offering people greater employability and job resilience. But are all digital skills created equal?

The analysis provided in this publication shows that not all digital skills will be equally important in the future. In fact, occupations which we are more certain will have poor prospects, are more likely to require a digital skill than the occupations that are most likely to grow by 2030. This is because the relationship between the digital intensity of an occupation and its potential for growth is not straightforward: there are occupations that are currently not digitally intensive, but are expected to grow in the next 10-15 years, as varied as teachers and chefs. The type of digital skills needed in a job also makes a difference: the digital skills most likely to be needed in growing occupations are ones that are used in non-routine tasks, problem-solving and the creation of digital outputs. This is exploratory analysis that takes a novel approach.

This Youth Voice Census report, the third of its kind, is a much anticipated look at how young people are feeling on a range of issues related to education, work and the areas in which they live. Open to 14-24 year olds across the UK, it captures the voice of young people within the Youth Employment UK network and allows them the chance to be heard.

This year’s census findings tell the story of those in education, work and seeking work just as the landscape is set to change in an unprecedented way.
Unrealised potential: The role of the independent training providers in meeting skills needs
Date de publication: 30 janv. 2020

Independent Training Providers (ITPs) are an integral part of the TVET landscape. They play an increasingly important role in delivering government policy priorities in the development of TVET systems, however their role is often under-researched and their significance overlooked. The first research in the series, conducted in partnership with the Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP), puts the ITP sector in the spotlight.

The research begins by outlining the distinctive characteristics of the ITPs in the UK which enable them to respond to government priorities. Examples of the successes and challenges that UK ITPs face are presented through mini case studies. Further on, the research examines the role of the ITPs in six countries – Botswana, South Africa, Uganda, India, Nepal and Sri Lanka and the different models they operate within.

This research aims to prompt national policy makers to consider whether they are making the best use of ITPs by highlighting their distinct characteristics that make them suitable and effective in delivering government skills objectives. It also aims to raise awareness among ITPs about the work undertaken by counterpart organisations in other countries and to encourage international collaboration.
