Step Up Measurement
We cannot track improvements in skilling for youth if we don’t have a baseline from which to work. Be part of a global effort to track young people’s skills and share research on the subject.
The clock is ticking, and the need for young people to develop the full set of skills for the future of work becomes ever more urgent.
It’s vital to prioritize investment in tackling the global learning and skills crisis by leveraging both the World Skills Clock and world-leading research on the skills gap.
Steps you can take
Your organization can vocalize the urgency of the youth skills crisis and do its bit to further our understanding of the situation. Get started by contributing to skills measurement and research.
Track skills via the World Skills Clock
On the basis that we cannot improve what has not yet been measured, join in the global effort to track the status of young people’s skills through the World Skills Clock.
This handy tool gives real-time updates on how many young people globally lack secondary education-level skills and how many lack digital skills. Data can also be viewed on a country-by-country basis for a more detailed look at the skills gap.
Your organization can help by providing resources to improve how the skills gap is measured in your country. This will deliver even better data for the World Skills Clock.
Any research that your organization commissions or conducts on the skills gap can add to the evidence base on the subject.
Sharing available research on the status of skills – as well as the skills needed for the future of work and life – can help to fill gaps in current training and skills development.
Help to keep track of the global skills gap so that programmes and projects worldwide can direct their efforts in the most effective ways.
