This chapter outlines international trends in the growth of education and training. This analysis shows that these trends are not new but also indicates that, after the economic crisis, the level of engagement in education and training for the young has remained stable and in some cases has grown. In the second part an examination is undertaken of education and training policies in the UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand showing how they have contributed to this process. In the final section it examines the impact of these approaches on the ‘skills revolution,’ suggesting the promise that the new era would produce jobs that needed high skills has been broken and what has become available are low-skilled and low-paid jobs.
