This publication has been prepared by the Inter-Agency Group on Technical and Vocational Education and Training on skills mismatch in digitized labour markets, to support experts and policymakers who wish to engage in discussion on the potential of web-based big data for skills policy.
It outlines how such data can be used to mitigate labour market challenges, reduce skills mismatches and strengthen the links between the labour market and education and training.
The focus is on overcoming conceptual and practical challenges and limitations, system development and using big data for skills policy in practice. Examples of big data initiatives from around the globe illustrate its potential and provide insight into how big data are already supporting policy-makers in shaping the futures of work and education.
