In fast-changing economies, developing a dynamic workforce can be the difference between success and failure. Getting the right number of people with the right skills and competencies into the right jobs at the right time requires trust and collaboration from all key actors.
VET Toolbox International Seminar 2021: How can TVET work effectively with the private sector in fast-changing economies?
The VET Toolbox International Seminar took place last week from 23-25 November. The interactive online seminar, which was implemented by the British Council, included contributions from international TVET experts, policy-makers and lead educators, employers, apprenticeship NGOs and training agencies, as well as over 300 delegates.
Amongst the speakers were Daniel Susskind, Fellow in Economics at University of Oxford, visiting Professor at King’s College London, author and co-author of the best-selling book, The Future of the Professions, who spoke about ‘Training the future workforce for automation and technological change’. The seminar also welcomed key actors in creating an enabling environment for private sector engagement in TVET, such as Dr Anthony Mann, Senior Policy Analyst at the OECD, the Honorable Vice President of Malwai, Dr. Saulos Klaus Chilima and Hendrina Chalwe Doroba from the African Development Bank.
