In countries around the world, youth unemployment and skills gaps are threatening the growth of economies, the stability of societies and the wellbeing and prospects of individuals.

We build trust and international opportunities that support efforts to enhance the skills and employability of young people.

Our work in skills and employability encourages closer links between education, employers and policy makers in the UK and worldwide to enhance the employability of individuals, particularly young people and disadvantaged groups.

We use the themes of skills and enterprise to develop international collaboration and support social and economic development.
