ILO/Regional Skills Programme/Japan: Regional Workshop and Study Programme on "Strengthening quality assurance mechanism through capacity building and knowledge sharing"

Quality assurance plays an important role in ensuring that the right skills are available to meet the needs of individuals, businesses and economies. An effective quality assurance system is a critical factor in reducing the gaps between the supply of skills and labour market needs. The ILO through its Regional Skills Programme is hosting this workshop with the support of the Japanese government. The workshop aims to provide opportunities for discussion on the challenges of implementing quality assurance mechanisms and strengthening quality assurance systems across the region.
