Skills2Capabilities is about understanding how skill systems need to develop if they are to assist people in making labour market transitions - i.e. between jobs, employers or sectors – and thereby reduce the level of skill mismatch which might otherwise arise. The study is about the capabilities individuals will increasingly need to acquire if they are to effectively manage labour market transitions.
From the demand side, the study addresses the skills and capabilities in demand now and in the future. From the supply side, it addresses how the capabilities of interest are reflected in vocational education and training. The research will provide decision-makers in government and education with a better understanding of the capabilities that skills systems will need to supply in the future.
The study is comprised of a range of inter-related projects.
