On 23 May, 2016, Mr Rupert Mclean, former Director of UNESCO-UNEVOC and current QAPCO Professional Chair in Vocational Studies as well as UNEVOC Centre Coordinator for the College of the North-Atlantic Qatar (CNA-Q), and Mr Abdulla Ahmed Kamal Naji from the Qatar Petrochemical Company (QAPCO), visited UNESCO-UNEVOC. The visit provided an opportunity to present UNESCO-UNEVOC’s knowledge management and development activities, as well as consider the UNEVOC Network’s activities in light of the UNESCO TVET Strategy for the period 2016-2021, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as well as UNESCO-UNEVOC’s Medium Term Strategy for the period 2015-2017.
The discussions also covered entrepreneurship education and other developments regarding technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in the Arab States region. Above all, the meeting highlighted potential areas of collaboration, including in the area of Greening TVET, the possibility of submitting promising practices to UNESCO-UNEVOC’s Promising Practices Database, as well as contributing to the International Centre’s knowledge management activities such as the World TVET Database and the TVeT Forum. Mr Mclean and Mr Naji also took the time to showcase some of their UNEVOC Centre’s future developments, including the development of clearing-house functions on TVET in the region, and the organization of a seminar and annual meeting on TVET. With these and other developments, CNA-Q hopes to become a centre of excellence in the region.
