Global Skills Snapshot: a look at three systems

17 October 2017 at 09:30 in Conference Room B

In partnership with British Council

What lessons can be learned from the structure, and organization of different skills systems? Here, we assess three countries including one in the Gulf, one in Europe, and an emerging economy. The panel members will reflect on the shared, but also distinct, challenges of their national framework. This will include an assessment of the role of emerging industries, and the need for internationally recognized qualifications. Following the panel the session will break into marketplaces for more in-depth consideration of each country.
