Through conferences and events, we seek to bring to India the best of the UK skills training and vocational education practices, and promote engagement with their Indian counterparts for the benefit of both the countries.
The platforms also advocate and promote best practices that will aid in the implementation of the developmental agenda and help stakeholders engage in meaningful dialogues for addressing crucial national issues relating to employability and skills.
Some of our upcoming events have been listed below:
The future of TVET: Disruption and development
As the world changes so must TVET provision. Technological and industrial change, increased labour mobility and accelerating climate change provide significant challenges, but also, opportunities. The event will take place on 5-7 March 2019 in London and Derby, and will focus on how we can best shape systems and institutions to both, respond to, and enable the future of TVET.
During the seminar we will explore the following questions:
- How can systems best be governed to ensure responsiveness and autonomy in a changing world?
- How can we provide flexible routes to work and adaptable skills for a changing labour market?
- What does the learning space of the future look like, both physically and digitally?
- What emphasis do we need to place on life-long learning and how can this best be combined with initial TVET offers
- How do we develop partnerships to shape this new offer?
The programme will also feature visits to employers and to independent training providers and colleges, expert speakers, interactive workshops, and a networking dinner.
Participants will leave with an improved knowledge and understanding of effective practice in delivering quality TVET provision that meets the needs of the future and insight into policy setting and implementation models.
