联合国教科文组织即将成立“全球技能学院”,期冀为百万青年培养就业能力和应变能力,并帮助他们在可能即将到来的衰退和不容乐观的就业形势中找到工作。
教科文组织在7月15日“世界青年技能日”之际正式推出这一项目——“在COVID-19时代及之后以技能助力韧性青年”。
于今年3月成立的旨在支持各国开发包容性学习解决方案的联合国教科文组织“全球教育联盟”成员在新的目标下集结,希望通过免费提供在线技能开发项目,为年轻人提供获得数字技能和其他能力的机会。全球技能学院将聚合各合作伙伴的内容,提供一站式培训服务。
学院创始成员包括Coursera、迪奥、Festo、华为、IBM、微软、Orange 数字中心和PIX。国际劳工组织、经合组织和世界技能大赛等国际组织和合作伙伴也将为该项目做出贡献。
学院将通过国际职业技术教育培训中心(UNEVOC)提供匹配服务运作。该中心是教科文组织下设的专业技术和职业教育培训机构全球网络。
有关可用培训的详细信息将与分布在160多个会员国的250个UNEVOC中心共享。这些中心将确认感兴趣的参与者,并将其引导至联盟成员的培训平台。帮助弱势学习者将是项目的优先事项之一。
 “危机凸显了向青年提供正确技能,以加速向更具包容性、可持续性和韧性的经济过渡的紧迫性。” 教科文组织教育助理总干事贾尼尼(Stefania Giannini)说,“这需要大力投入教育和技能培训,并扩大与雇主的合作,以缩小技能需求与工作场所之间的差距。”
疫情对教育和就业产生了巨大影响。停课对在培训机构和学徒制项目中学习的学生的影响尤为严重,因为他们更依赖于实践培训和仅在培训中心和工作场所才能提供的硬件设施。
根据联合国秘书长最近发布的《COVID-19与劳动世界》政策简报,在全球受冲击最为严重的就业人口中,年轻人占其中的40%以上。甚至在危机到来之前,就有2.67亿年轻人不在就业或教育培训之中。
全世界的劳动力市场都需要诸如数据分析、云计算、人工智能和机器学习等领域的技能,但是许多教育和培训系统不具备为青年人提供这些领域的就业技能所需的能力。
学院创始成员的贡献包括:
Coursera:劳动力复苏计划——在线学习以重新培训失业工人,进而重新进入劳动力队伍
迪奥:“女性@ 迪奥”计划——围绕自治、包容、创新和可持续发展这4项核心价值的领导力教育计划
华为:面向所有人的技能(Tech4All)计划——涵盖人工智能、大数据和物联网等领域的数字技能培训和慕课
Festo:关于水技术和废水管理的在线学习模块
IBM:免费访问相关平台,这些平台提供有关新兴技术的培训以及面向年轻人和成年人的技能提升和技能重塑
微软:免费在线课程和现实世界工具,以培养可帮助学生和求职者在后疫情世界取得成功的技术技能
Orange:用于数字技能开发的Orange数字中心和Orange校园服务,在非洲和中东提供免费在线课程
PIX:评估、开发和认证数字技能的平台
 
UNESCO launches Global Skills Academy to boost employability of one million youth as recession looms
Paris, 15 July—UNESCO is launching a Global Skills Academy aiming to equip one million young persons with employability and resilience skills and help them find jobs during the looming recession when youth employment prospects look bleak.
The Organization unveiled the project, Skills for a Resilient Youth in the Era of COVID-19 and Beyond, on World Youth Skills Day, celebrated on 15 July.
Members of UNESCO’s Global Education Coalition, launched in March to support countries in developing inclusive learning solutions, are teaming up to provide youth with opportunities to gain digital skills and other competences through free access to online skills development programmes. Partners’ offers will be pooled within the Global Skills Academy, providing a one-stop access to training opportunities.
Founding partners include Coursera, Dior, Festo, Huawei, IBM, Microsoft, Orange Digital Centres and PIX. International Organizations and partners including ILO, OECD and WorldSkills Competition will also contribute to the project.
The Academy will operate through a matching process facilitated by UNEVOC, UNESCO’s global network for institutions specialized in Technical and Vocational Education and Training. 
Detailed information about available trainings will be shared with the 250 UNEVOC Centres in more than 160 Member States. The Centres will identify interested participants and connect them to the Coalition members’ training platforms. Outreach to disadvantaged learners will be a priority.
“The crisis has highlighted the urgency of equipping youth with the right skills to accelerate the transition to more inclusive, sustainable and resilient economies,” said Stefania Giannini, Assistant Director-General for Education at UNESCO. “This requires massive investment in education and skills training and expanded partnerships with employers to narrow the gap between demand for skills and the workplace.” 
The impact of the pandemic on both education and employment has been dramatic. Students enrolled in training institutions and apprentices have been particularly affected by closures as they are more dependent on practical training and hardware that is only available in training centres and workplaces.
According to the recent UN Secretary General’s Policy Brief on the “The World of Work and COVID-19”, the young account for more than 40% of people employed in hard-hit sectors worldwide. Even before the crisis hit, 267 million young people were not in employment, education or training.
Skills in such fields as data analytics, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and machine learning are in demand in labour markets around the world, yet many education and training systems lack the capacities needed to prepare youth for employment in these areas.
Founding partners’ contributions include:
Coursera: Workforce Recovery Initiative, online learning to reskill unemployed workers to re-enter the workforce
Dior: Women@Dior programme, a leadership educational program around the four core values of autonomy, inclusion, creativity and sustainable development
Huawei: Tech4All programme, a digital skills training and MOOCS covering fields such as Artificial intelligence; big data and the Internet of Things
Festo: e-learning modules in water technology and wastewater management
IBM: free access to platforms providing training on emerging technologies and upskilling and reskilling for youth and adults
Microsoft: Free online courses and real-world tools to build skills in technologies that help students and jobseekers succeed in a post-Covid world
Orange: Orange Digital Centres for digital skills development and Orange Campus Services allowing access to free on line courses, both in Africa and Middle East
PIX: platform to evaluate, develop and certify digital skills
