TVET Leaders Forum 2017
Launched by the Abu Dhabi Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training - ACTVET, to nationally celebrate the achievements of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), TVET Innovation Week is the first event of its kind in UAE. TVET Innovation Week aims to engage and inform prospective students about the benefits and advances in TVET, as well to become the national platform for experts, industry and government leaders, policy-makers, researchers and educators to exchange ideas and expertise on future TVET trends.
The 2017 edition of the TVET Innovation Week will focus on the theme: TVET – Leading the Way to a Sustainable Post-Oil Economy.
The UAE government is actively developing a holistic national post- oil strategy that aims at realizing a sustainable economy for the future generations. It has been continuously highlighted that investment in education and especially TVET is at the forefront of the national priorities in building the capabilities of the national talents to enable them to lead the economy in a sustainable and balanced manner.
A skilled and qualified workforce is needed for further economic and social development within the UAE (UAE Vision 2021). Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) has an important role to play in this context of establishing a robust labour market and addressing Emirati skill development, human capital and employability by 2021.
The TVET Leaders Forum 2017 brings together a group of leading experts within the global TVET sector for the purpose of enhancing awareness, fostering understanding, sharing of on-going practices, the formulation of new ideas and cooperation between TVET institutions and the corporate sector to foster youth employability.
ACTVET invites representatives of the private and government sectors in the field of Human Resources, Emiratization and Training & Development to take part in this national event.
