OECD Skills Strategy Diagnostic Report: Korea 2015
Skills are central to Korea’s future prosperity and the well-being of its people.
The OECD Skills Strategy Diagnostic Report: Korea identifies 12 skills challenges
that need to be addressed to build a more effective skills system in Korea. These
challenges were identified through: 1) the OECD’s recent data and research; 2) the
national data and research; 3) a diagnostic workshop 4) fact-finding interviews with
key stakeholders in Korea. The report has also benefited from ongoing dialogue and
consultation with a wide range of Korean stakeholders. The first nine challenges refer
to specific outcomes across the three pillars of developing, activating and using
skills. The next three challenges refer to the “enabling” conditions that strengthen
the overall skills system. Success in tackling these skills challenges will boost
performance across the whole skills system. All of the challenges identified are strongly
interlinked, and their connections with each other are identified throughout the report.
Failure to look beyond policy silos will have implications for specific groups in
Korea, such as youth, as well as for the economy and society’s ability to recover
following the economic crisis and build a solid foundation for future prosperity.
