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.


Skill mismatch and shortages in Italy: Highlights from the OECD Skills for Jobs Database

This chapter provides novel evidence on the existence and degree of skills imbalances in Italy. To this purpose the chapter draws directly from the information contained in the new OECD Skills for Jobs Database. Imbalances in skills, abilities and knowledge types for Italy are analysed and their extent is compared to that observed in other countries for which information is available in the OECD Skills for Jobs Database. The chapter also explores how key technological trends are reshaping the demand for skills in Italy and how the information contained in the OECD Skills for Jobs Database can be used to provide guidance on the skills that are needed to fill current gaps in the labour market so as to increase skill matching.
