Annex A. The OECD Skills Strategy Flanders: Assessment and Recommendation project

The National Skills Strategy (NSS) Flanders project was published in 2019 and launched during the high-level Skills Strategy Seminar in Brussels in January 2018 with the Flemish Minister and representatives from the Department of Work, Economy, Innovation and Sports; the Department of Education; the Social Economic Council; and the European Commission.

Throughout the project, two workshops were held in May and September 2018 to provide input and shape the recommendations featured in this report. The workshops convened a wide range of stakeholders, including unions, employers, sectoral training providers, education institutions, academics and government representatives. Bilateral meetings with stakeholders and experts, as well as site visits, also took place.

Five priorities were selected by the OECD and the Flemish Government, with analysis and recommendations for each area (see overview in Table A A.1).
