This event took place on 18 June at 9.30am, UK time.
Providing a pathway to sustained and fulfilling employment is a key purpose of education, particularly Technical and Vocational Education and Training. To what extent then can we show systemic reform to have improved employment outcomes? A new piece of research led by the Research Base will explore this topic.
We will also hear from contributors from the around the world about how education must respond to the economic impact of COVID, the impact of 4IR on education and about how we can make sure that employment is inclusive of all groups and tailored to meet local needs.
Attendees will leave this session with an enhanced understanding of the effect of systemic reform in TVET upon employment outcomes and how education can and is responding to global shocks.
