Skills Forecasting Model – renewed Model new results

Which occupations will likely grow (and fall) in demand, which will be the main trends of qualifications levels and how will the supply side change in the horizon 2025 in the Ukraine?
Medium/long-term quantitative forecasting is one of the approaches that provides responses to these questions and useful insights for policy-makers, stakeholders from the world of work, and the wider public. Occupational and skills forecasting shows the wider picture - the direction and scale of change. And this picture of future trends can be reshaped - if the mix of policies is based on well-grounded insights, monitored and reviewed, with participation of the interested stakeholders.
But it is not enough to produce a one-off forecasting report ?. The capacity to forecast, interpret the results and use them - needs to be nurtured and embedded in the policy cycle, supported by continuous improvement of the Model(s) and by robust data. Other methods and dimensions of future oriented analysis need to be developed and regularly used. The data revolution in the world of Internet allows new forms of data mining and analysis of labour market and skills dynamics in real time, with visualisation of results tailored to diverse needs and interests.
The workshop of 9 November in Kiev, supported by ETF experts, will gather approximately 40 participants representing ministries, state employment service, social partners, international organisations and experts to discuss the results from the renewed skills forecasting Model Ukraine. Participants will contribute with their comments to the final version of the analytical report of skills forecasting (horizon 2025) and share ideas and advice on the way forward to continue developing and using the Model in a sustainable way.
The two project reports will be available on demand: a) Description of the methodology of the Ukrainian occupational and skills forecasting Model; b) Analytical report of occupational and skills forecasting in the Ukraine.
The core experts' team is formed by: Dr Ben Kriechel and Dr Volodymyr Sarioglo.
