The Certificate of Advanced Studies - CAS on Governance of skills development systems is part of the Diploma of Advanced Studies (Executive Diploma) on Skills Development. The CAS, organised in collaboration with the Swiss Federal University for Vocational Education and Training, is a 10 ECTS learning path for decision-makers and practitioners in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET)/Technical and Vocational Skills Development (TVSD), structured around three modules which focus respectively on :
The CAS on Governance of skills development systems is positioned at the heart of decision-making of these systems, contributing to the emergence of skills development ecosystems at regional, national and local levels for one or more economic sectors.
The objective of the CAS is to enable the actors of an ecosystem to act with full awareness and interact with other actors and ecosystems related to the labour market. The ITCILO has designed and is implementing this offer in conjunction with the Swiss Federal University of Vocational Education and Training, which is the cornerstone of capacity development within the Swiss TVET system, widely considered the world reference in the sector. In its design, this offer has received technical and financial support from the French Development Agency.
The target audience for this pathway is composed primarily, but not exclusively, of professionals from developing or emerging countries who are in charge of TVET / skills development systems or who have experience in these areas.
This pathway is intended for people who are active in the definition and implementation of public policies related to skills development systems:
Blended learning, innovative and participatory learning methodologies, study visits, integrated use of technologies
The Certificate takes all participants to both campuses in Turin and Lausanne, for face-to-face learning experiences.
Candidates obtain official certifications, either for the CAS or for each of its three modules.
