We share the UK’s experience, knowledge and expertise to help enhance the skills and employability of young people.

We encourage closer links between education, employers and policy makers in the UK and the countries we work in to help enhance the skills and employability of young people globally. Our work creates opportunities for individuals to broaden their horizons and be equipped with the skills needed to face today's global and multicultural world of work. 

We do this by sharing experience from policy and practice; encouraging mobility and exchange for young people, practitioners and policymakers; supporting innovative and sustainable partnership working; and helping to build the capacity of teachers, practitioners and policy-makers. We continually develop our work through piloting different approaches to raise the profile and quality of skills development globally.
