Building Sustainable, Resilient and Thriving Rural Places

Innovative Ways to Deliver Education and Skills Training in Rural Areas

Sep 29, 2022 | 12:45 PM - 2:15 PM



Rural secondary school students and adult learners often face fewer opportunities for education and training. Adult learning helps maintain and upgrade workers’ skills so they can keep pace with changes in the labour market given digitalisation, the green transition as well as other trends and shocks affecting the location and skills content of jobs.. This session will discuss initiatives and policies to promote high quality learning in rural contexts, and solutions to overcome the barriers that prevent many rural people from obtaining the skills needed for good jobs.
