Trends Shaping Education 2019

Trends Shaping Education 2019 | Vocational education and training - VET | Scoop.it

Trends Shaping Education examines major economic, political, social and technological trends affecting education. While the trends are robust, the questions raised in this book are suggestive, and aim to inform strategic thinking and stimulate reflection on the challenges facing education – and on how and whether education can influence these trends.

This book covers a rich array of topics related to globalisation, democracy, security, ageing and modern cultures. The content for this 2019 edition has been updated and also expanded with a wide range of new indicators. Along with the trends and their relationship to education, the book includes a new section on future’s thinking inspired by foresight methodologies.

This book is designed to give policy makers, researchers, educational leaders, administrators and teachers a robust, non specialist source of international comparative trends shaping education, whether in schools, universities or in programmes for older adults. It will also be of interest to students and the wider public, including parents.

How do the educational attainment and labour market outcomes of foreign-born adults compare to their native-born peers?

Adult migrants in all OECD countries are a diverse group, with different profiles and levels of education. Even if they hold tertiary degrees, they are more likely to have poorer labour market outcomes, including lower earnings. Participation in the labour market is more difficult for foreign-born adults who arrived at a later age and acquired their qualifications in another country. It is important that host countries design and implement policies that will help immigrants improve their chances in their labour market, benefitting both the person and the country.

USA. How Workforce Learning Opportunities Influence Your Position as an Employer of Choice

USA. How Workforce Learning Opportunities Influence Your Position as an Employer of Choice | Vocational education and training - VET | Scoop.it
With an unemployment rate below 4 percent, employers in all industries find themselves in a fierce war for skilled workers. This is the tightest labor market in a quarter of a century.

To compete, companies need alternative benefits to offer to candidates and to retain current employees. Every company offers standard benefits like health insurance and retirement plans, so those no longer move the needle with applicants.

Many employers are distinguishing themselves by providing learning opportunities in their benefits packages in the form of tuition assistance programs designed to help employees complete their degrees. This is becoming an essential factor in being an “employer of choice” — a company people eagerly want to work for and recommend to their colleagues.
