Youth and skills

The growing disconnect between the skills that are taught and the skills that the market needs, is leaving millions of young people without jobs. Automation is increasingly taking over mundane tasks and new industries are rapidly emerging. This Fourth Industrial Revolution demands a workforce with a new set of core skills to creatively tackle complex and unforeseen challenges. 

The three conference tracks follow the WorldSkills building blocks – discussing how young people can be inspired to take up skills, how skills can be developed through raising standards in countries around the world, and how we can all influence national and international stakeholders to improve skills provision.
