Vocation could be the New Superpower.

About this Event

Teachers, health-care workers, cleaning staff, drivers, sales assistants at your local grocer, postal staff among others have risked their health and are working tirelessly at the frontline to minimise the impact of the ongoing pandemic. As we celebrate them as superheroes we must also celebrate their superpower - their vocation. .

Despite the challenges, this is a rare moment of opportunity for the VET/TVET community. COVID19 has leapfrogged us into the future of work and changed the methods of teaching and learning. As high growth sectors (aviation, tourism, hospitality, mobility) repurpose themselves and adapt to the changes, several new industries will be born. This will widen the skill gaps and increase the skills shortages. As companies look out for ‘on-demand’ talent (creative, flexible, specialised, gets the job done), training providers must invest in understanding this demand and preparing for these shifts.

Numerous models are being trialled and tested around the world. Some take a target driven approach without a true understanding of demand stimulated by the economy, others have a very informal arrangement, and leaders integrate the approach from early on matched to workforce demand and job roles. The big question being asked in this session therefore is Are VET/Skills providers preparing for on-demand talent in future? If yes, how? We explore recent examples from Australia, Commonwealth and EU.

Host : Wendy Perry, Managing Director at Workforce BluePrint, and Entrepreneurship Facilitator at Switch Start Scale.

Guest Expert :Pooja Gianchandani, International TVET Expert and founder @TVETChat.

The webinar will be followed by a global #TVETChat on Twitter starting at 12.30 CEST.
