IVETA Europe is pleased to hold its first regional conference on technical, vocational education and training (TVET) in beautiful Malta.
The theme of the conference is “Revaluing TVET”.
TVET generally has the dubious position of being the poor cousin in relation to higher education. Students and their parents look at TVET options as the last resort if a university place of their choice is not available. Governments throw money to build ever-expanding universities yet grudgingly acknowledge that TVET institutions are a necessity without the same level of commitment or investment.
The fact is that TVET skills create new businesses and generate employment. The world runs on TVET skills in virtually all industries and sectors. While some nations are starting to realise the importance of investing in and building up this area, there many others who place less importance on it in their quest to become “developed”. This conference seeks to redress the imbalance in the views of TVET across the different stakeholders, including those of TVET students themselves.
Educators and industry practitioners from around the globe will come to share their expertise, ideas and experience. The conference is organised jointly by Warnborough College and St Joseph Mater Boni Consilii School, Malta.
