Join leading academics and industry stakeholders as they rethink Vocational Education in the Asian Century.
Profound social, technological, and economic changes have sparked decades long debates about the purposes and possibilities of Vocational Education (VE), and how VE can meet the different needs of different stakeholders – students, employers, providers, governments.
The so-called 'digital disruption' is the most recent process to reframe the relationships between VE, the labour market, and economic security and precarity.
Over the course of two days, the Centre for Education, Training and Work in the Asian Century will present research findings from leading academics and industry stakeholders to contribute to the rethinking of VE in the Asian Century.
Drawing on a range of theoretical, methodological and empirical work from leading researchers, practitioners and thinkers, the symposium will identify, explore, map and debate the challenges and opportunities for reimagining adult and vocational education for the Asian Century.
Open to researchers and industry bodies interested in the future of Vocational Education, this event will combine presentations, discussion and networking opportunity to attendees.
