Building Future Skills and Employability with TVET

Date Thursday, Nov 24  Time   –    Room Koepenick I/II

Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) is too often the poor relation in the world of workplace L&D. It’s overlooked in favor of high-profile learning programmes. But things are changing. The global emphasis on reskilling and upskilling, and the need for new skills in a shifting economy means that both organisations and policy makers are taking TVET seriously to ensure employers have the skills they need for the future.

Here we take both a general view of how TVET is working across sectors and look at what individual employers are doing. 

We’ll see how to help individuals, and those that train them, prepare people for skilled work in today’s economy and also explore the blurring boundaries between at-work training and formal education.
