The inaugural of the APAC TVET Forum will be held online on the first two Fridays in November 2021.

The forum is managed by partners Te Pūkenga, Education New Zealand and Skills Consulting Group with the theme “Bringing us together”, Participating senior government officials, major companies, international organisations and TVET sector leaders from around the APAC region to share ideas and best practices.[1]

There is no cost to register for forum sessions on 5 and 12 November, and there are networking opportunities and sessions on the days in between.

The APAC TVET Forum was organised on the powerful grounds of the Sino-NZ Vocational Education and Training Model Programme, Under this programme, Chinese and New Zealand institutions have taken turns to host the annual New Zealand-China Higher Vocational Education Conference.

Specialists from technical and vocational education will work with Governments, industries and educators to upskill and reskill workforces interfered by the pandemic.
