Skills for jobs in the 21st century (Inglês)

There is an indisputable link between learning outcomes and economic growth. From preschool to university to technical and vocational programs, education matters for human development and future employment. Swift changes in technology, for example, have shifted the focus of a well-educated worker in the 21st century from the qualifications needed for doing a ‘lifetime’ job to the skills needed to do specific tasks in jobs that are constantly changing. This is especially relevant for young people entering the workforce. Approximately 75 million young people in the developing world are unemployed, and youth unemployment rates are 2 to 4 times as high as those of adults in most countries. To be productive and employable members of society, their education must equip them with relevant market skills that blend knowledge and technical knowhow with soft and hard skills. Employers want workers who have technical expertise, communication skills, can work collaboratively in teams and know how to analyze problems by thinking critically.
