The World Skills Clock monitors learning and skills trajectories globally and at the country level using a real time data model. It is the first global tool of its kind to visualize the current and future skills gap. As an interactive web tool, the clock provides estimation, projection, and visualization of worldwide data related to children and youth reaching certain learning and skills benchmarks. The World Skills Clock is accessible to everyone online and serves as an important advocacy tool. Our aim is for the World Skills Clock to become the global reference for the status of skills which every citizen, policymaker, journalist, or social entrepreneur can refer to.
