Key global challenges that must be tackled to nurture skills, and maximize their impact on economic prosperity, will be placed in focus through expert led forums at WorldSkills Conference 2017, 16-17 October in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
The British Council, the UK’s international organization for cultural relations and educational opportunities, is a Coalition Partner of the WorldSkills Conference. It is hosting three sessions at the Conference at WorldSkills Abu Dhabi 2017, that will each address a pivotal topic in the sphere of skills development.
The sessions are designed to capitalize on the global profile of the event – with 1,300 young people from 60 Member countries and regions competing in 51 skills categories at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from 14-19 October. Education leaders, policy makers, senior practitioners, and employers will also be in attendance and will exchange knowledge, ideas, and opinions on how to ensure Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) plays a central role in economic strategies around the world.
