The future of skills, vocational education and training and labour market systems is at the forefront of the Torino Process 2017 conference on June 7-8.
The Changing Skills for a Changing World theme has different meanings. It describes skills that are changing in response the global environment, innovation and disruption. It also describes the effect of bringing about change in skills development.
Education and training systems must engage in changing skills to ensure learners and workers acquire the adaptability needed to thrive in the fast changing world of work.
The future of skills, vocational education and training (VET) and labour market systems is at the forefront of the Torino Process 2017 conference, which brings together hundreds of stakeholders from ETF partner countries, Europe and beyond!
You can participate online! Plenary sessions live in English, French and Russian. Join the conversation on Twitter @etfeuopa #ETFTRP. Online programme available here.
Innovation, Diversification, Delivery, Cooperation and Future are the key words that frame the discussions, debates and workshops.
Innovation – the thread running throughout the conference and the future of ETF work with its partner countries, where VET policies will be shaped around innovation as both a process and opportunity.
Diversification – ensuring that VET provision is diversified to reach more users in better, more customised ways, and diversifying programmes and methods of delivery.
Delivery – shifting coordination between stakeholders to move from a focus on policy formulation to actual mechanisms for delivering actions.
Cooperation – promoting the idea that cooperation is something that needs to take place not only nationally, but throughout levels of governance in the country – local, vocational institutions and communities.
Future – focusses on two big ideas: preparing for the next round of national VET strategies in partner countries and looking at how evidence collection and analysis can shift from a focus on past and present performance to anticipating future needs.
