Think Global, Act Sectoral
INSSO’s launch publication Think Global, Act Sectoral explores the underpinning themes that drive successful sector-based systems. The international contributors are all leaders of their field, writing about the unique aspects of their countries sectoral approach.
Education and training systems across the industrialised world are coming under increasing pressure. Industrial sectors are becoming ‘knowledge intensive’ as global forces increasingly shape international trade patterns and supply chains. We are now entering the era of the ‘global skills race’. The policy response in many countries has been to establish industry-led sector skills organisations.
Labour Market Intelligence
The publication Labour Market Intelligence explains how INSSO member countries collect, analyse and disseminate sectoral labour market information to influence education providers, reform qualifications, as well as anticipate future industry skills needs. Andrew Cardozo, executive director at the Alliance of Sector Councils in Ottawa, edited the book. This version is available in both English and French.
Quality Criteria for National Occupational Standards in India
INSSO, the International Skills Standards Organization, has produced these Quality Criteria as a framework for assuring the quality of the emerging NOS in India. They are derived from criteria developed originally for the UK Commission for Employment and Skills and the Alliance of Sector Skills Councils in 2010 and they have been adapted for the Indian context.
