Skills Innovation Network

The Skills Innovation Network is a global member-driven network of skills innovators interested in sharing ideas and experiences and collaborating to develop and scale innovations that support skills development for employability of workers, productivity of enterprises and promoting social justice. The Skills Innovation Network connects innovators, ILO constituents, TVET institutions, academia and development practitioners. By building on the existing ILO Skills for Employment Knowledge Sharing Platform, it will provide access to tools, resources and knowledge-sharing events that members can use to build ongoing solutions to the problems they face.

The Skills Innovation Network seeks to:
  • CONNECT innovators, ILO Constituents, TVET institutions, academia, and development practitioners working on similar issues on skills development around the world;
  • ENGAGE the Network’s members in collaborative discussions around key challenges in skills development through exchanging solutions, sharing experiences, and learning each other to turn ideas into real-world innovations; and
  • ACCELERATE innovation around skills development by making knowledge, experience and expertise available and searchable.
