Event description

Description

IVETA Europe invites you to a regional conference on vocational education and training (VET) in beautiful Malta. Come share your expertise, ideas and experience with like-minded educators and industry practitioners in an idyllic location.

Revaluing VET

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.

We invite papers and workshop presentations on the following areas:

  • The perception of TVET and associated issues, including the perspective of would-be students;
  • The role(s) government should play with regard to national TVET development;
  • Collaboration between TVET institutions and industry;
  • Collaboration between TVET institutions and other institutions of learning;
  • The role of TVET in nation-building;
  • TVET across borders;
  • TVET in conjunction with an existing workforce;
  • TVET delivery: time for a change?
  • TVET as a tool to tackle unemployment;
  • Are current TVET assessment practices adequate?

Paper presentations will last for 40 minutes each with 5 minutes for questions and answers. Some submissions may be accepted as a workshop presentation instead, which would be more collaborative in nature with a formal presentation of about 15 minutes (with 30 minutes for participant input with regard to specific questions or challenges posed by the presenter).
