22 October 2020 - Unlocking regional capacity to address TVET and Employment Challenges

Unlocking regional capacity to address TVET and Employment Challenges

With catalysts such as rising unemployment, expanding youth demographics and industrial change, regional rather than national governments are increasingly taking a lead role in coordinating TVET responses.  How though can we best enable regional solutions whilst maintaining national and international collaboration and learning.  What experience does the UK have in regional skills development and what can we learn from other countries approaches?

This online event will feature short summaries of projects and research to stimulate debate, but the main portion will be interactive allowing delegates to share their insights and question the panellists

26 November 2020 - What should the College of the Future be?

What should the College of the Future be?

With TVET Colleges around the world vital for so many purposes how do we ensure that they adapt and thrive to meet the challenges of changing economies, societies and communities?  We will ask how best limited resources can be deployed to deliver the best outcomes for learners and to what extent colleges must redefine or reassert their purpose.  What do colleges need to prioritise and focus on to fulfil their purpose and what do they need from Policy Makers and partners including employers to thrive?  

When: 26 November 2020 

How to take part: The link to the registration form will be published at the end of September.
