Effective Education for Employment: A Global Perspective

The Effective Education for Employment project is inspired by convincing evidence that:

  • The skills race is real and human capital is the key to economic success.
  • Education is key to winning the race but current education systems are typically failing.
  • While there are local characteristics, the problems we face are global.

During the first 18 months of the project, we engaged with leading thinkers, practitioners, employers, employees and learners from across the globe to support our assertion. This report is the culmination of our first phase of work.
