Economic growth needs to be sustainable – aimed at developing a stronger, cleaner and fairer society. Across all sectors, the demand for skills is constantly changing, being driven by green growth, technological change and innovation, demographics. New jobs with new skills requirements are being created, existing jobs require skills upgrading, especially as technology changes and there is shifting demand for existing skills. Vocational education and training (VET) can play an important role in providing the skills economies need, but until very recently VET has been neglected and often overshadowed by increasing emphasis on general academic education and universities. Now countries are looking to improve the performance of their VET systems in responding to labour market needs. OECD has identified common policy priorities across countries at upper-secondary level and is now turning attention to the post-secondary level, which is becoming increasingly important in producing the highly skilled technicians and professionals for which there is growing demand. Policy challenges facing the post-secondary VET sector include finding effective institutional frameworks, obtaining a better match of supply and demand for skills, enhancing quality, and ensuring equity, access and completion.
