Skills contribute to determine the employability of people. In the global economy, technological advances are rapid, and countries must respond to changing global needs for skills. Unfortunately all countries are not prepared to respond to labour market needs.
All persons have a right to education and skills development. The ILO works with Government, Employers and Workers to promote access to education and skills development for people including those with special needs. Education and training contribute to national efforts towards poverty reduction and sustainable economic growth.
