GAN Global empowers people and businesses by promoting and advocating for the uptake of work-based learning including apprenticeships, as a way to address the mismatch between the skills people have and the skills employers need. The goal is to accelerate the acquisition of skills and capabilities of all segments of the workforce and build a robust talent pipeline for business that can match the pace of change in the world of work. Our members are trailblazers and thought-leaders from leading multinational corporations and international organizations, who are setting examples for others to follow and shaping global and community policies and approaches. GAN has established networks in several countries across the globe.
Closing the skills mismatch gap is more urgent than ever. To tackle this issue, we need to not only take an in-depth look at the skills people need to remain employable in this labour market – but how do we skill people effectively, especially during times of uncertainty and rapid digitalization? And where better to look for skilling needs and programmes, than to the private sector? The Global Apprenticeship Network (GAN Global) is a private sector led and government backed skilling and employment initiative born in 2013 amidst a labour market crisis, following financial uncertainty and economic shocks felt in several countries.
