【Vocational Education】China-Canada Vocational Education Forum

Theme: Vocational Education for Sustainable Development

Time: October 20, 2017 (Friday) 13:30 - 17:00

Venue: Room 201AB

As Canada and China recalibrate their economic models to achieve more sustainable growth, both need to respond to the challenge of developing the requisite technical and scientific capabilities. Underlying the increasing pressure for new models of TVET provision are also the rapid pace of technological change, demand for a workforce more responsive to evolving marketplace needs and calls for lifelong learning.


Jointly organized by CEAIE and Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan), this Forum will highlight trends and prospects in technical and vocational education and applied research in Canada and China, with particular reference to achieving the greening of the economy. It will also showcase best practices in existing cooperation between Chinese and Canadian vocational education institutions and discuss opportunities for further collaboration.
