Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) is central to the achievement of sustainable growth in industries because they need people with the right set of knowledge, skills and attitude to grow.

EDUCATION POLICY AND DEVELOPMENT OF AFRICAN TVET SYSTEMS FOR SUSTAINABLE INDUSTRIES

The International Conference, July 2019, on Education Policy and Development of TVET Systems invites academicians, teachers, professionals, policy makers and other stakeholders to send research abstracts, case studies, and papers formatted according to the given format. The conference will be held July 3–5, 2019 in Nsukka, Nigeria under the following subthemes:

  • Education policy for developing and implementing TVET curriculum that can equip students with skills they need to succeed in industries today and in the future
  • Education policy for effective assessment, reporting and certification in TVET
  • Education policy for successful digitalization of TVET processes
  • Education policy for improving TVET environment
  • How can education policies in Africa ensure effective continuous professional development of TVET educators?
  • How can the industry collaborate with educational institutions to ensure that they get people with skills they need for sustainable growth?

This conference will bring together TVET educators, scholars, policy makers and industrialists to X-ray existing TVET policies and make recommendations for creating/strengthening African TVET policy frameworks to make them capable of transforming and revitalizing the TVET systems to support industrial growth.

In this conference, the faculty of Vocational and Technical Education of the University of Nigeria will be welcoming back former students, members and heroes of the faculty, who have gathered a lot of TVET experience from different parts of the globe. It presents an excellent opportunity to celebrate their achievements as well as those of the faculty which has existed since 1963.

Numerous TVET institutions have been established across Africa to produce graduates who are work-ready and who are capable of creating employment for themselves and for others. However, economic situations in many African countries, including unemployment challenges, suggest that the TVET institutions may not be delivering their mandates successfully; even as international and supranational organisations continue to advance policies and programmes for the improvement of TVET access, quality and relevance. TVET stakeholders need to be aware of these policies and programmes. They need to develop adequate understanding and capacity to assess, recontextualize and implement the policies and programmes successfully.
