The OECD Skills Strategy provides a strategic and comprehensive approach for ensuring that people and countries have the skills to thrive in a complex, interconnected and rapidly changing world. The updated 2019 OECD Skills Strategy takes account of the lessons learned from applying the original skills strategy in 11 countries since 2012, while also incorporating new OECD evidence about the skills implications of megatrends, such as globalisation, digitalisation, population ageing, and migration. The Strategy also incorporates new learning from across the OECD about skills policies that work in these three broad components: developing relevant skills over the life course, using skills effectively in work and society, and strengthening the governance of skills systems.

Strengthening the governance of skills systems

This chapter provides a framework of the policy dimensions required to govern skills systems effectively. It provides examples of how to better calibrate the interaction of the elements of good governance to create processes that are important for the effective functioning and accountability of skills systems. It advocates a whole-of-government approach to skills policies and highlights four policy dimensions relevant to pursuing such a goal: 1) promoting co-ordination, co-operation and collaboration across the whole of government; 2) engaging stakeholders throughout the policy cycle; 3) building integrated information systems; and 4) aligning and co-ordinating financing arrangements.
