International skills partnership seminar: bringing the learning home 2014


Our annual international skills seminar is for organisations from around the world who are involved in, or interested in getting involved in, our international skills partnership work. The seminar will focus on sharing experience, learning from other partnerships, showcasing achievements and building connections. It places strong emphasis on helping to increase impact and return on investment. 

This is the first year this seminar will be hosted in Asia, and will be held during the ASEAN skills competition 2014.

The seminar will include British Council’s biggest ever call for proposals for new partnerships, with exciting partnership opportunities announced between the UK and a range of countries including China, Pakistan, Yemen, Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Jordan, South Africa, Indonesia and Myanmar.

The event is co-organised with General Department of Vocational Training, Vietnam Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs.
