ABOUT

Rapid technological change linked to the Fourth Industrial Revolution and other megatrends (intensified globalisation, demographic pressures, climate change and other factors) are having a significant impact on labour markets worldwide, presenting challenges including job displacement, skills becoming obsolete, as well as opportunities such as new emerging jobs and occupations. As new industries and occupations emerge, technological change reshapes business processes, occupational structures and the task content of occupations, there will be a continuous need for reskilling and upskilling of the workforce. For skills systems to develop and adapt training models to be responsive, effective and inclusive, a better and more timely understanding of these changing needs is critical,.

Against this background, an approach is proposed to assess reskilling and upskilling needs relating to specific industry sectors, with the aim to inform the development, adaptation and improvement of training models that are responsive to these needs. The approach is designed to provide labour market information and analysis that are of high quality and relevance, and may be replicated across sectors, implemented sustainably and enhanced over time.

This approach has been implemented under the ILO-GIZ RECOVET project “Strengthening Labour Market Information Systems (LMIS) in ASEAN for better skills and employment policies”, supported by the GIZ/RECOTVET and ILO, together with the ASEAN Secretariat. The project is planned in the SLOM-WG Work Plan 2021-2025 under the joint leaderships of Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs of Viet Nam (MOLISA), and Ministry of Manpower of Indonesia (MOM). The approach for skills needs assessment has been adapted to national context and implemented in the two lead countries: Indonesia and Viet Nam.

Utilising a comprehensive approach, the assessment synthesizes information from literature, secondary data on labour market information (LMI) and policy reviews related to maritime subsectors in Indonesia, as well as textiles, garments and automotive industries in Viet Nam. Primary data collection involved surveys to target groups (e.g., workers, recent graduates, and students) and employers from selected subsectors. Additionally, the study engaged in discussions with employers’ associations and held steering committee meetings and a validation focus group discussion to gather insights and confirm findings with stakeholders.
