Based on a broad analysis of the competence landscape in Norway, the OECD has suggsted five measures to better address future competence needs in the country. Besides calling for a new national competence strategy, the OECD suggests making an action plan for continuing education and training, strengthening of the cooperation between competence development and economic growth, developing a comprehensive system for lifelong career guidance, and strengthening incentives to more people to choose to work in occupations where there is shortage of labour.
All of these areas “hit the bull’s eye” when it comes to the issues SkillsREAL-project is focused on. We hope that the goverment will start the work with the above measure as soon as possible. Link to government’s pages related to the OECD’s Skills strategy.
