Education at a Glance 2020: How can vocational education and training help young people succeed during the crisis?

Andreas Schleicher presents the latest international data from Education at a Glance and what it means for education systems currently battling the effects of the coronavirus crisis.

Coronavirus lockdowns highlighted just how much modern society relies on vital services such as manufacturing and healthcare, professions which require specialised vocational training to secure a job. The situation has brought home the need for governments to review the role vocational education and training (VET) can play for those entering work during the crisis.

At the same time, vocational education and training has been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 crisis. But strong VET system can play an important role to buffer the negative economic effects of the pandemic.
