Getting Skills Right: Future-Ready Adult Learning Systems

image of Getting Skills Right: Future-Ready Adult Learning Systems

With digitalisation, deepening globalisation and population ageing, the world of work is changing. The extent to which individuals, firms and economies can harness the benefits of these changes critically depends on the readiness of adult learning systems to help people develop relevant skills for this changing world of work. This report presents the key results from the Priorities for Adult Learning (PAL) Dashboard which facilitates comparisons between countries along seven dimensions of the readiness of adult learning systems to address future skill challenges. Based on the dashboard, the report highlights in which areas action is needed, and policy examples from OECD and emerging countries throughout the report illustrate how these actions could be implemented.

Methodology and data sources

The conceptual framework of the Priorities for Adult Learning (PAL) Dashboard was developed by the OECD based on a literature review and expert opinion. It aims to assess the readiness of adult learning systems to respond to the challenges of changing skill needs in OECD countries. It highlights key priorities to reduce skill imbalances while ensuring access to high-quality adult learning for everyone. To this effect, the Dashboard encompasses seven dimensions, 18 sub-dimensions and 52 indicators.
