Private sector development through education 2018

There is a close relation between development, private sector and education.
During this conference we want to exchange ideas and take action to improve the cooperation between private sector, public sector and UN/NGO’s.
Furthermore we want to boost technical and vocational education and training. We are aiming to get practical results and would like to see all parties active and involved during this conference.

Day one: Let’s boost business

The first day we start to look at how the private/public/UN-NGO’s can better cooperate and coordinate to help the growth and strength of the private sector.
The key-note speaker will voice for the businesses and will challenge all of us for change and action.
After that there will be plenty opportunities to come into action.
There are four workshops during the conference and you can choose which ones you want to join in. All four workshops will be held two times so you can participate in two.
Register your participation in time.

Workshops:

Associations, what can they do for business?

In this workshop we will explain and discuss the idea of an institute that is co-owned and co-financed by both private and public. We will stimulate and facilitate the initiation of a PPI for TVET with the aim of having the first training courses up and running in the year of 2018.

Workshops:

Golden Triangle: roles and responsibilities
Objective of this workshop is to look at how different actors can work together in organizing education.
Shared power, roles and responsibility between the government, private sector and educational providers has proven to be a golden triangle; efficient and effective education delivering the quality and quantity graduates to fit the market needs and the needs of the society.

Private, government and NGO’s can work out how to join forces and resources for mutual benefit.

Complementary ways to educate and train people
Objective of the workshop is to get complementary ways of education and training recognized and valued by all stakeholders; education providers, receivers, employers and government.
There are many ways to educate and train people and how to get this education or training
organized. Private, public, in house, modular, formal, on line, on the job, factory training, evening class, tailor made, refresher courses etc. etc.
The results to be achieved through all these complementary ways is to get a skilled workforce that fit the needs of the labor market. During this workshop the need and benefits of complementary education will be highlighted and discussed as well as recognition and valuing of the different means of education and training by the government and other quality insurance bodies.

How to get the private sector into schools and visa versa
Objective of this workshop is to improve cooperation and knowledge exchange between educational providers and employers.
When was the last time that a teacher visited your company? When was the last time the company visited a school? Do students come to the company for an excursion?

There is a world to win and we want to discuss practical and innovative ways of cooperation between companies and schools.
