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 

In what has been an extraordinary two years due to the global pandemic and fast-changing world of work, it is more important than ever to address the massive disruption of workforce upskilling and retraining throughout the Asia Pacific region. There is an urgent need to ensure the sustainability of workforces through innovation and skill building. 

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 with the theme “Bringing Us Together”.

Close to 1,000 registered participants from 61 countries joined together for a cross-system conversation about effective skills development.

This year’s knowledge-sharing APAC TVET Forum will take place on the 14th and 15th of September 2022, around the theme of “Reshape – Rethink – Reset.”

While gaining new connections across APAC TVET, event participants will gain insight on hot topics including sustainable practices, digital learning and micro-credentials.

Across the two-day virtual event, attendees will hear from senior government officials, major companies, international organisations and TVET sector leaders from around the world.
