Monday, 17 June, 4:00 p.m., Room C
Hosted by Deutsche Welle
In the course of globalization, many corporations from industrialized countries have established branches in developing and emerging economies. They often find it difficult to find specialized personnel there. In many cases that's due to inadequate education systems, especially for skills training and follow-on education. So in a variety of ways, companies are themselves training and certifying local people for the vacancies they need to fill. They are also investing in local education systems to promote sustainable employment.
This workshop will consider ways to expand and improve vocational and occupational training. Development cooperation, commerce and media experts will present projects to drive sustainable progress of education in developing and emerging countries. How can their training and job markets be directed toward sustainable job creation and economic growth? Which didactic training models have produced positive results in practice and embrace young people's interests? And what role can international media take to convey knowledge?
