Nature of Learning

Nature of Learning : Using Research to Inspire Practice

For OECD member countries, high-level workplace skills are considered a key means of supporting economic growth. Systems of vocational education and training (VET) are now under intensive scrutiny to determine if they can deliver the skills required. Learning for Jobs is an OECD study of vocational education and training designed to help countries make their VET systems more responsive to labour market needs. It expands the evidence base, identifies a set of policy options and develops tools to appraise VET policy initiatives. OECD is conducting country VET policy reviews in Australia, Austria, Belgium (Flanders), the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Korea, Mexico, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom (England and Wales) and the United States (South Carolina and Texas). A first report on Chile and a short report on the People's Republic of China have also been prepared. The initial report of Learning for Jobs is available on the OECD website: www.oecd.org/edu/learningforjobs.
