Across the world the vocational education and training community is trying to keep up with constant changes in the labour market. Unless a relevant supply of skilled workers anchors businesses into local communities, these changes risk hindering equitable economic growth and social cohesion. Evidence from local good practices is a potentially powerful source of information in vocational education policymaking and designing how to provide it. This session examines good practices from Algeria, Belarus, Georgia, Israel, Jordan, Kazakhstan and Montenegro, all addressing gaps in vocational education and training. Participants will discuss ideas, approaches and tools to identify policy-relevant goals and connect evidence from local good practices to national policymaking.
