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.
British Council UK Skills Policy Seminar in partnership with Skills Development Scotland
Date: 5 - 7 November 2019
TVET for All? Getting positive outcomes for marginalised groups through TVET
TVET is often seen as a second choice for learners. However, for economies and societies to thrive we know that TVET needs to work for all groups including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, older learners and people with disabilities. This event will focus on practical steps and policies that effectively support diverse groups of learners to engage, achieve and succeed through TVET.
During the seminar we will explore the following questions:
- What purpose does technical and vocational training serve for different groups and how do we deliver this?
- How can you as a policy maker enable access but preserve quality in a system?
- How can we ensure that diverse groups of learners from a range of backgrounds can benefit from quality training equally?
- How do we measure outcomes from both a social and economic perspective?
- How do we seek to change perceptions of VET routes and the capabilities of different groups of learners?
The programme will also feature:
- Visits to employers
- Visits to training providers and colleges
- Expert speakers
- Interactive workshops
- A networking dinner
Participants will leave with an improved knowledge and understanding of effective practice in delivering quality inclusive TVET provision for diverse groups of learners and insight into policy setting and implementation models.
