To be successful, employment policies and programmes must be informed by a strong understanding of the local labour market. This may include information on growing sectors, existing job vacancies, skills needed in the private sector, working conditions, etc..
Since there is no single type of assessment to understand employment and labour market dynamics, practitioners must be able to identify the most suitable type of assessment(s) for their context and needs. This presentation will provide an overview of different types of labour market assessment and introduce relevant criteria to facilitate the choice of the appropriate instrument.
