Getting Skills Right: Italy

This report identifies effective strategies to tackle skills imbalances in Italy. It provides an assessment of practices and policies in the following areas: the collection and use of information on skill needs to foster a better alignment of skills acquisitions with labour market needs; the design of education and training systems and their responsiveness to changing skill needs; the re-training of unemployed individuals; and the improvement of skills use and skills matching in the labour market. The assessment is based on country visits, desk research and data analysis conducted by the OECD Secretariat.

Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter discusses how elements of the recent labour market reform Jobs Act are providing renewed incentives for skill matching in Italy. The chapter discusses the way skill supply meets the demand in the Italian labour market and how this process can be strengthened to ensure that workers are employed in jobs that fully make use of their skills across the whole country. The chapter also discusses the recent introduction of the new National Agency for Active Labour Market Policies (ANPAL) and how this can play a key role in spurring skill matching in Italy. Bottleneck and challenges for the future are also discussed.
