Foresight analysis and the dimensioning and targeting of education

The need for foresight in education is obvious, but the audit found shortcomings and inconsistencies in the defining of objectives regarding foresight. Foresight, dimensioning and allocation in education do not have a legislative basis set out in acts or decrees. The purpose of this audit was to determine whether foresight, dimensioning and allocation form a whole that can respond to labour needs and changes in them. The question was whether proper conditions exist for foresight, dimensioning and allocation to function effectively. This document contains a summary of the main results of the audit. The entire audit report is available only in Finnish.
