The project aims to improve the status, image and attractiveness of TVET by promoting TVET reforms and the benefits of industry-relevant programs to employers, potential students and learners, parents and the general public.

An annual Conference for the TVET sector will serve as a flagship event to bring together TVET stakeholders from industry, government, TVET institutions and civil society for dialogue, exchange of ideas, sharing of good practices, and learning about the trends in TVET. Conferences will be supported by the project in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Each conference will include a TVET awards ceremony to publicly acknowledge outstanding achievements by TVET providers. Other linked activities may include exhibitions and careers fairs.

Networking and targeted outreach activities will involve business organizations, other stakeholders and VET providers at all levels of the TVET system. Effective engagement with the private sector is central to the implementation of all project activities.

The first Annual TVET conference was held on 18 July, 2016.
