Skills are a critical asset for individuals, businesses and societies. The importance of skills is even more pronounced in a dynamic, globalized world. Building basic skills early on, by broadening and improving the quality of early childhood, is essential. But it is also crucial to ensure that skills taught at school are relevant for the working world; that they are maintained and further improved during working life; and that they are recognized and used by employers once people are in the labor market.

Fore sighting and Forecasting the Supply of Skilled Workforce
Throughout the world there has been an increase in the demand for skilled labor in what is now a global emerging. More specifically, the demand for skills related to complex communication and non- routine cognitive tasks has increased, while the demand for routine and manual skills has declined. This reflect a new reality: jobs have been shifting significantly from unskilled to skilled labor. As a result, returns to education and professional skills—that is, their value on the marketplace—have sharply increased. This evolution in the labor market is at the heart of major changes in employment outlook. The movement toward greater use of skilled labor has in turn produced relatively greater unemployment for low-skilled workers.

Reflection on the Demand of the Skilled Workforce
There is no question that skilled labor is increasingly in demand in today’s modern economies. Skills requiring expert, inventive thinking are sought after and skills involving repetitive tasks are not. The percentage of the labor force employed in occupations involving routine cognitive and manual tasks, as well as nonroutine manual activities, has declined. In such a rapidly changing market, the need for the assessment of existing skill shortages and for forward-looking information on how the labor market and the demand for skills might change has become increasingly acute.
