Washington, DC, -  The Manufacturing Institute, together with Alcoa Foundation and the Atlantic Council, released the report, “Global Responses to the Skills Gap: Emerging Lessons.”  The report outlines four major challenges to closing the skills gap: managing demographics, building flexible skills, expanding work-based learning, and partnering to achieve scale.

The report states that to address the issue of creating a successful talent pipeline “national quality standard for certifications” is needed and should be led by a cross-national training methods institute.  The findings are based on the assessments of the strengths and challenges of methods used in a variety of countries, such as Finland, Germany, Hungary, and the United Kingdom, as well as in South Korea and Mexico, which are used to develop a framework for discussion.
