16 to 24 July 2018

Organized on the occasion of World Youth Skills Day 2018, the virtual conference focused on improving the image of TVET and initiated, guided and synthesised a range of perspectives, evidence and advice about the factors influencing the image of TVET and the occupations it serves, and importantly how these can be addressed to make TVET attractive to youth. The virtual conference, hosted on the TVeT Forum, was moderated by Professor Stephen Billett and was attended by 346 participants from 82 countries.

The intended outcomes of the conference were for participants to:

  • Understand the factors influencing the image of TVET, and the impact this image has on individuals, business and society;
  • Appreciate some of the factors and challenges impacting the decisions of young people when choosing their career/education path;
  • Identify suitable measures that can help improve the image of TVET in their context; and
  • Explore ways to assess the impact of measures to improve the image of TVET.
