SEE into the Future: Skills, Entrepreneurship and Employment in the 21st Century

About

SEE Into the Future Astana is our skills initiative in eastern and southern Europe and Central Asia.  

This event is being run in partnership with Kazakhstan’s flagship Nazarbayev University and Kasipkor Holding (the national Technical Vocational Education and Training agency tasked with setting up a network of world-class colleges across the country). The conference takes place within the framework of an MOU on education co-operation currently being developed between the Kazakhstani Ministry of Education and Science and the UK Government, as well as a Knowledge Partnership Agreement between the UK and Turkish Governments to strengthen co-operation in higher education and skills.

Critically, SEE Into the Future Astana follows on from, and takes account of, the forthcoming Inter-Governmental Commission between Kazakhstan and the UK. It will attract an audience of around 300 government policy-makers, university and college leaders and practitioners, business leaders and other influencers and senior managers, with tens of thousands more accessing highlights online.

SEE Into the Future Astana will provide an opportunity for UK higher education institutions and colleges to showcase expertise in areas such as education/industry engagement, qualifications, curriculum development and teaching and learning, positioning them favourably for potential future consultancy and contract opportunities. Through networking at the event and exclusive reception, UK universities and colleges can demonstrate first-hand the strength of their expertise in skills, employability and entrepreneurship. 

Themes

The conference will focus on the following questions: 

  • How can education providers and industry co-operate better?
  • How can we help young people make the right career choice and how can industry be confident that young people have the skills that they need?
  • How does teaching and learning need to change in order to better equip young people for future employment and business success?
