Skills – digital and non-digital – are what drive the economy. Employers need skilled workers, and skilled workers command jobs with higher pay and benefits. Highest in demand are digital skills, which are increasingly needed in every employment sector, including traditional manufacturing.
But it’s hard to test for digital skills. Researchers recognize these skills aren’t isolated competencies you develop through short courses or teaching yourself to use a program for work. Digital skills are “interdependent in practice,” and require a new form of measurement.
The Flexible Learning Strategies for Out of School Children programme is a UNESCO initiative with the aim of supporting inclusive and quality education for every child in the region. Our goal is to reach the remaining and most vulnerable 5% of children with no access to education in the region and support quality improvements in learning for every child.
