BILT’s online workshop with Africa was an opportunity for TVET institutions and stakeholders from Africa to learn more about BILT, discuss their possible engagement with the project and initiate the bridging process with Europe. A total of 67 participants from 19 countries (Belgium, Botswana, Cameroon, Estonia, Ethiopia, Germany, Ghana, India, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Malta, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Spain, United States of America, and Zambia) took part in this virtual event, including 16 African and 4 European UNEVOC Centres.
Participants emphasized the importance of collaboration and peer learning within the UNEVOC Network, especially in the context of the current COVID-19 education crisis. Ms Christina Boateng from Ghana stated:
BILT is an opportunity for us, as a UNEVOC Centre, to share our experiences and learn from other TVET stakeholders, both from Africa and Europe. We would like to host a BILT conference at University of Cape Coast in the first half of 2021. We look forward to exchange on innovative TVET practices with other African and European UNEVOC Centres at this occasion.
BILT’s roadmap of international activities planned for 2020 and 2021 presents a range of opportunities for African TVET institutions to engage. UNEVOC Centres and TVET stakeholders from Africa are invited to participate in the ‘Europe-Africa conference’ in 2021 and share innovative practices implemented at their institution, which could be included in the ‘BILT Innovation and Learning Practices’ database. Additionally, TVET institutions can accompany the process of the BILT Expert Group on ‘New Qualifications and Competencies in TVET’ by providing feedback on the practical applicability of the results available in 2021.
Institutions interested in engaging with BILT are invited to contact the BILT team at: unevoc.bilt(at)unesco.org
