Skills and education lead to quality jobs. We know this anecdotally and from experience, but the OECD has been monitoring youth unemployment in its member countries to demonstrate with data that in order to create jobs, investment in job training is necessary.

When the global unemployment crisis hit its peak, 40 percent of employers said they could not find workers with the right skills. And 25 percent of workers—even Europe’s richest economies—say they want more demanding jobs.

With such high demand for better skills, where’s the training supply?
