Academy Structure

Please find below the programme of the Skills Academy 2015.


While the overall structure and contents of the Academy will be similar, every year we are introducing changes to the Academy programme and add some more thematic areas.


Timetable Academy on Skills Development 2015


Week 1



Week 2

 English Week 2


Morning lecture

Each morning, the programme offers a 90 minutes lecture on an overarching, strategic topic in the area of skills development policies and systems, in order to create a common level of knowledge and understanding.


Elective intensive courses


Participants can choose to attend a number of parallel Elective Courses. Elective Courses deal in a more focussed way with specific topics related to the development of skills policies, the management of skills development and TVET systems and the challenges of some of the components of these systems. Modern interactive adult learning methodologies will be applied during the Elective Courses. (Please also refer "Elective Courses Description").



Inspiration sessions


Specific time slots will be dedicated to the presentation of inspirational practices by the participants themselves. All participants are invited to share an innovative or novel practice within their institution, system or country, a latest development or research or an original solution to tackle a specific problem that they would like to share and that other participants could learn and profit from.



Technical cooperation and networking space


The Academy will reserve a particular space for international cooperation agencies, as well as for ILO itself to present their activities and projects in the area of Skills Development and TVET and to provide a space for networking.



Participatory learning and exchange sessions


Several sessions of the Academy will be reserved for actively stimulating an exchange of knowledge between participants.



Local study visit (1/2 day)


For the duration of half a day, the group of participants will undertake a study visit to a local training provider.



Training materials


Participants will be given access to all training materials (presentations by lecturers and background reading) in electronic format.
