"World Youth Skills Day"
World Youth Skills Day, observed annually on 15 July, focuses on the strategic importance of equipping young people with skills for employment, decent work, and entrepreneurship.
In 2021, the World Youth Skills Day will again take place in a challenging context. The COVID-19 pandemic continues, reaching a scale that could hardly have been anticipated one year ago. While vaccinations offer to hope to bring the situation under control in several high-income countries, major emerging countries are facing severe outbreaks that overwhelm their health infrastructure. Education and training systems have yet to return to pre-pandemic conditions. Respondents to a survey of TVET institutions jointly collected by UNESCO, the International Labour Organization, and the World Bank reported that distance training had become the most common way of imparting skills, with considerable difficulties regarding, among others, curricula adaptation, trainee and trainer preparedness, connectivity, or assessment and certification processes.
The objectives of the World Youth Skills Day 2021 are therefore to:
• Assess the situation of young people regarding skills and work during and after the COVID-19 pandemic; learn how they have been living through the crisis; highlight success stories of youth innovation and resilience;
• Youth is the most important and dynamic segment of the population in any country. It is believed that developing countries with large youth populations could see tremendous growth, provided they invest in young people's education, health and protect and guarantee their rights.
• Reflect on how TVET stakeholders can collaborate to scale up skills development and help reconcile the short-term need for economic recovery with the urgent need for accelerating the transition to sustainable development.
Additionally, the Global framework on core skills for life and work in the 21st century will be launched. This new global framework reflects the ongoing transformations and the emerging opportunities in the world of work. This publication contributes to ILO's efforts in promoting personal and professional development for all, through lifelong learning.
