image of Adult Learning in Italy

While Italy has made major progress in the past decade to up-skill its population and workers, further efforts are needed to improve access to good quality adult learning opportunities. Training funds represent one important tool through which Italy could face the pressures brought about by the mega-trends, and equip adults and workers with the skills needed to thrive in the labour market and society. This report analyses how training funds are designed, used, and monitored, and provides actionable policy recommendations to ensure that they are put to their most effective use.


Ensuring that training is of good quality

Ensuring that training is of good quality – e.g. that it is effective, complies with quality standards criteria, and is certified – is fundamental to ensure that available Training Funds resources are put to their best value use. Continuous monitoring of the activities of the Training Funds through good information systems, as well as regular evaluation of the impacts of training on workers’ labour market outcomes and firms’ performance is essential to keep track of the quality of training. This chapter analyses the mechanisms put in place in Italy to ensure that TF-supported training is of good quality.
