An interactive session where participants learned about major trends in skill development, the importance of skills to education, gender, and economic growth, how to know what skills are needed in a country’s labor market, how skills are categorized, what works in skill development, and the latest thinking on developing performance measures for skills that allow comparison across different skill development programs.
