Bringing Us Together

As a state-of-the-art immersive virtual event, the annual APAC TVET Forum brings together key groups – Governments, Industries, and Educators – with a view of creating thriving futures for people everywhere 

Wherever we live in the world, a thriving future is what we all want. That is why governments, industries and educators alike are working together to upskill and reskill workforces as they adapt to accelerated change.

To share knowledge and insight on best practices across Technical & Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in the Asia-Pacific, Te Pūkenga (New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology), Education New Zealand and Skills Consulting Group launched the inaugural APAC TVET Forum, an annual live online event in 2021.

This year’s knowledge-sharing event will take place across two-days: 14th and 15th September 2022. While gaining new connections across APAC TVET, visitors will gain insight on hot topics including sustainable practices, digital learning and micro-credentials.
