22nd Annual European Forum of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (EfVET) Conference « The College that Works!!!! »


23 Octobre 2013 - 04h00 - 27 Octobre 2013 - 03h59

The youth unemployment rate is close to 26% across the European Union and rising and in some member states significantly higher.  There is a real danger of creating a ‘lost generation’, yet at the same time there are more than 2 million vacancies that cannot be filled.

Colleges and VET Institutions need to be more innovative; build closer partnership with Business and Industry to ensure young people and adults alike have the necessary skills to meet the demands of new jobs in a global marketplace. To meet these challenges: flexibility; work based learning; apprenticeship programmes, where business and VET providers work closely together and share jointly the skills development of the workforce, are key to the future of VET.  VET institutions themselves need to become much more ‘entrepreneurial’ in this context. This poses many challenges – not just in terms of teaching and learning but in Leadership and Change Management.  How can VET Institutions respond to these demands and challenges?

The conference will explore these issues in depth and provide an opportunity for delegates to learn from each other; consider different models and approaches and promote the concept of ‘the entrepreneurial College’.  That is ‘The College that works!!!’
