Skills training for employment, development and productivity

Enrolment is open for the new “Academy on Skills Development”: skills and TVET for improved productivity, employment growth and development. The Academy will be conducted in English, French and Spanish.

Duration: two weeks Dates: 15 to 26 October 2012 Venue: Turin

Enter a stimulating and challenging learning environment! The ILO Academy on Skills Development will offer a unique forum for enhancing your knowledge, discussing major policy challenges, exploring options and newest tendencies and sharing your own experiences in the area of skills development and TVET. You will interact with a worldwide audience of policy advisors, technical experts, researchers and practitioners.

The varied Academy programme comprises policy lectures, parallel learning tracks and practice-oriented courses as well as exchange and discussion forums. Participants will determine their individual learning paths according to their needs.

One particular feature of the Academy is the “innovation sessions” – specific time slots dedicated to innovative practices, new research and latest developments in the area of skills development and TVET to be proposed and presented by both experts and participants. All participants are invited to share an innovative or new practice within their institution, work environment or country, a recent development or research or an original solution to a problem from which other participants could learn.

A “Market Place” will give participants an opportunity to present their institutions and display their materials and products, as well as to create opportunities for networking with other experts and participants

The Academy on Skills Development is organized by the Turin Centre and the ILO Skills and Employability Department, in collaboration with ILO/CINTERFOR (Inter-American Centre for Knowledge Development in Vocational Training), the German International Development Cooperation (GIZ), and the Luxembourg Agency for Development Cooperation.
