Event description:

CALL FOR PAPERS 3RD RVTTI INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE 18TH -20TH June, 2014 As skills become leading policy concerns for developing countries in their struggles towards rapid economic development, TVET is becoming more crucial in advancing and providing critical and competent work force. Unemployment for the youth and adults is a challenge that has been blamed on the education and training curriculum that does not address the needs of the industry thereby resulting in serious mismatch in the demand and supply of competent skills.

It will afford the discussants a forum to suggest and critique several approaches on learning employability skills within a broader and more holistic perspective of learning life skills.
