OECD Skills Strategy Flanders

Assessment and Recommendations

Better skills policies help build economic resilience, boost employment and reinforce social cohesion. The OECD Skills Strategy provides countries with a framework to analyse their skills strengths and challenges. Each OECD Skills Strategy diagnostic report reflects a set of skills challenges identified by broad stakeholder engagement and OECD comparative evidence while offering concrete examples of how other countries have tackled similar skills challenges. 

These reports tackle questions such as: How can countries maximise their skills potential? How can they improve their performance in developing relevant skills, activating skills supply and using skills effectively? What is the benefit of a whole-of-government approach to skills? How can governments build stronger partnerships with employers, trade unions, teachers and students to deliver better skills outcomes? OECD Skills Strategy diagnostic reports provide new insights into these questions and help identify the core components of successful skills strategies. 

This report is part of the OECD’s ongoing work on building effective national and local skills strategies.

Reducing skills imbalances

The chapter presents diagnostic evidence on skills imbalances in Flanders, the factors that affect skills imbalances and specific policies and practices to reduce skills imbalances. Flanders can reduce skills imbalances by taking action in six areas. These are: 1) ensuring that the education system is responsive to labour market needs; 2) improving information about current and future skills needs; 3) integrating career and training guidance services; 4) making skills visible; 5) promoting labour mobility; and 6) prioritising training in skills in high demand for jobseekers.
