Bringing Us Together – TVET in the Asia-Pacific
Te Pūkenga – New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology, Education New Zealand, and Skills Consulting Group are delighted to announce an inaugural APAC TVET Forum, to be held as a state-of-the art immersive virtual conference.
The Global COVID pandemic has put skills issues and innovation on the center stage, as governments, industries, and educators alike work to upskill and reskill workforces disrupted by the pandemic and ensure strong working futures.
The APAC TVET Forum will bring together the necessary key groups for effective TVET: Governments, Industries, and Educators. The Forum will offer Government to Government (G2G), Business to Business (B2B), and System-to-System content streams, then “bring us together” for a cross-system conversation across the APAC region.
The Forum will be free to register, and held over two Fridays (5 November and Friday 12 November, 2021) across the following local times:
- Bangkok, Thailand 09.30-14.00
- Beijing, China 10.30-15.00
- AEDT 13.30-18.00
- Samoa 14.30-19.00
- New Zealand 15.30-19.30
We will hear from senior government officials, major companies, international agencies and organisations, and TVET sector leaders from around the APAC region.
The New Zealand partners include New Zealand government’s international education agency, its largest private sector vocational education consultancy, and New Zealand’s new national institution for Vocational Education and Training.
We look forward to welcoming colleagues from around the region for this high quality and not-to-be-missed event: stay tuned to our social media channels for call for abstracts, registration, and speaker information in the coming weeks, or visit our website: www.apactvetforum.com
