Formulating a national policy on skills development
Looks at why national skills policies matter, what can be achieved by developing a national skills policy, key policy principles and how these can be incorporated in national skills policies as well as the process for policy development and effective implementation of skills policies. Intended to encourage particular action on the part of the constituents, the brief draws on Human Resources Development Recommendation (No. 195) and tripartite agreements adopted at the International Labour Conference in 2008 on “Skills for improved productivity, employment growth and development”. It also provides examples of successful experiences of national skills development strategies in some countries.
