Education and Human Capital

Education and life-long learning remain the cornerstones of a prosperous society, especially as we enter the age of digital technologies and unparalleled environmental challenges. To that end, sound and effective education and human capital policies are also key if the full range of human potential is to be unlocked.

At Visionary Analytics we focus on three domains within education, namely vocational education and training, higher education and adult learning, as well as the relationship between education policy and labour market structural change.

More specifically, we have developed expertise in assessing funding mechanisms for education, supporting novel approaches to education governance and reforms, and determining skill needs at various levels, ranging from company, to sectoral, to national.
