How should the programmes be funded? How should they be linked to academic and university programmes? How can employers and unions be engaged? This report synthesises the findings of the series of  country reports done on skills beyond school.

Hide / Show Abstract

Many of the findings of this report resonate with those from the earlier OECD study of vocational education and training at upper secondary level, Learning for Jobs (OECD, 2010). With that in mind, this chapter aims to integrate the findings of both studies and propose a set of key desirable characteristics of effective vocational systems.
