Vientiane, Lao PDR, 14-15 December 2015

Hosted by the Lao Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) together with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) the third Regional TVET Conference will take place from 14-15 December 2015. It will bring together key stakeholders from politics as well as senior representatives from the business community, international agencies and civil society. The aim of the conference is to create a platform for high-level policy and decision-makers to continue and further develop the Asia-wide dialogue in the field of vocational education and training within the context of the AEC integration as wells as in the spirit of the process started in 2012 in Hanoi/Vietnam and taken further in Jakarta/Indonesia 2014.

In light of the various stakeholders are facing with regards to regional economic integration, this years’ Regional TVET Conference will emphasize four key topics, promoting the support of the AEC integration by enhancing inclusive and labour market oriented TVET development:

  1. TVET Governance
  2. Inclusive Vocational Education
  3. Work process and employment oriented TVET
  4. TVET Personnel

The conference will promote transnational cooperation and regional harmonization within the TVET sector in Asia and in ASEAN in particular (based on joint recommendations).

The conference is an opportunity to revitalize and build on the process so far and it will help share best policy strategies and offer new ideas.
