KRIVET is hosting KRIVET-Africa a TVET Experts Workshop from July 23 to 27, 2012 in Seoul. The representatives of the five African countries taking part in the UNESCO’s Better Education for Africa’s Rise (BEAR) Project are the key participants. Those countries are Botswana, DR Congo, Malawi, Namibia and Zambia. As a partner institute in the BEAR Project, KRIVET supports the capacity building of the TVET-related institutions in the African countries. This is the second meeting since the first one held last year. The workshop serves as a means of sharing the experiences and perspectives in TVET in Korea and African countries. It is hoped that the interaction among Korean and African TVET experts will help the BEAR Project move forward in the direction to attain the objectives set in each country.
The workshop is being held in cooperation with UNESCO, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology. In addition to a series of presentations by leading TVET experts in Korea, there will be visits to specialized high schools, including Seoul Tourism High School, Gangseo Technical High School, and Yeoju High School for Agricultural Management.
