A rising industrial power, Brazil is South America's largest economy and a regional leader. However, despite the progress, Brazil’s education system is not seen to be providing workers with the essential skills required for an economy in transition toward more knowledge-based activities. Skills shortages further heighten the challenges arising from increasing inflation and unemployment, especially among youth, high-income inequality and a slumping economy. Brazil’s ability to sustain progress is dependent on a workforce which has the skills and knowledge to support a developing economy and drive inclusive growth.

Promoting the education and training sector is one of the government’s development objectives as Brazil recognises the necessity for upgrading and modernising its TVET system, enhancing the quality of vocational education according to national industrial needs. Skilled and specialised professionals provide significant improvements to the whole country in employability, competitiveness, productivity and sustainable resource use and development. With the impact of globalisation and the information revolution, workers and employees need the right skills to help them adapt to ongoing changes while supporting a growing economy. This report explores further education and skills development in Brazil and considers some of the challenges and opportunities for education and training suppliers to provide their expertise and services.

“Brazil’s ability to sustain growth is dependent on a workforce which has the skills and knowledge to support a developing economy and drive inclusive growth. The country has made significant progress in improving access to vocational education as part of the policy to enhance outcomes and equity in education to accelerate productivity growth.”
