Getting Skills Right: Italy

image of 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.


Assessment and recommendations: Policies to address skills imbalances in Italy

The “Buona Scuola” reform has the potential to reshape the Italian education system by providing, through the Alternanza Scuola Lavoro (ASL), renewed incentives for education providers and the world of work to co-operate. Lack of trust and dialogue need to be addressed, however, to develop strategies leading to more relevant skills to reduce imbalances.
