OECD encourages Finland to develop an overarching vision for the continuous learning system
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) recommends that Finland diversify its adult education provision, make it more relevant for working life, and use economic incentives to encourage reskilling and upskilling. Special attention should be paid to outreach and guidance services to adults with lower basic skills. The Ministry of Education and Culture and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment use the OECD recommendations for purposes such as the continuous learning reform.
