Worldwide, Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) aims to be a solution that solves a number of big problems. These problems fit into the four main categories of human rights, business and industry needs, government policy and individual aspiration.
Alongside the human rights aspects of TVET with the foundation of education, employment, equity, happiness, health and safety there are a number of business and industry need including:
Entrepreneurship and innovation
Growth and expansion
Priorities based upon industry advice and workforce demand
Standardisation of delivery and assessment as well as production/quality certification (of goods)
Turnover and profit
Government policy generally focusses on job creation, raising the educational attainment levels, providing a skilled workforce for businesses and industry plus addressing any barriers to engagement. Barriers may include the pool of people, in other words the sheer number of people to be developed, youth unemployment and participation rates, misalignment of the TVET system to business and industry needs.
This key note presentation focuses on innovation through partnerships and collaboration through TVET addressing business and industry needs as well as regional development that underpins economic development.
