EDUCATION AND THE LABOUR MARKET
The education and employment systems play a key role in the economy. A labour force which supplies the skills that are in demand and an employment system that quickly returns job seekers to the labour market are essential to economic growth as well as to sound public finances.
Knowledge about structures and processes in the education system and in the labour market is therefore crucial, and it includes pivotal questions about how we include as many as possible in the labour market; how we ensure businesses have access to the skills they need; and how we design an education system that teaches people the right skills.
We have many years of experience carrying out analyses within education and the labour market. Furthermore, we help a large number of clients - from central government, to interest groups to private businesses.
Among other things, we help our clients
- assess the impact of labour market and education policy initiatives;
- map demand trends in the labour market;
- carry out statistical analyses of skills profiles and skills requirements for different categories of education and for different categories of employee;
- prepare labour market supply and demand projections.
