OECD Local Skills Week 2024: Talent for the twin transitions

Session 8: Places 4 digital pathways: Leveraging digital skills to support young people into good jobs

Jun 27, 2024 | 1:15 PM - 2:30 PM

Description

Digital skills are increasingly in demand. At the same time, many young people continue to face obstacles to enter the labour market. In 2022, an average of 12.6% of people aged between 15 and 29 were not in employment, education or training (NEET) across the OECD. Innovative local initiatives are supporting vulnerable young people into digital jobs, also strengthening the inclusiveness of ICT occupations. This session will bring together a set of not-for-profit organisations and local government actors championing inspiring digital skilling initiatives for young people. All of them feature on the OECD PLACES portal – the new hub for local policy makers and practitioners featuring a growing number of case studies and evidence briefs on innovative solutions – along with many more.
