On July 15, 2020, the webinar dedicated to “Innovative TVET policies through transnational cooperation” was hosted by the Skillman Alliance. Top-notch international experts presented their approach to skills development in relation to transnational cooperation.
The webinar was a unique occasion for participants from different countries and institutions to get insights from key speakers and to interact with other professionals willing to elaborate recommendations to policymakers to foster improvement and innovation in the education and training fields.
Mr. Georgios Zisimos, senior specialist in EU education and training policies at the European Training Foundation (ETF), presented the ETF approach to build regional skills ecosystems through a Network of Centers of Vocational Excellence in their partner countries. This topic was further strengthened by Mr. Giovanni Crisonnà, Skillman leader, who presented the Skillman approach to Global Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVEs) and its Self Assessment Tools.
Insights about mutual learning on skills development among European regions were given by Mr. Hrvoje Kovač, Youth Chairman in the Committee for Culture, Education and Youth of the Assembly of European Regions and Deputy Mayor of the Town of Lepoglava in Varaždin County in Croatia.
Furthermore, potential cooperation windows with non-EU countries were addressed during the webinar by Mr. Akma Hamid, President of the Institution of Diploma Engineers Bangladesh (IDEB), which is the largest professional organization in the country and which is dedicated to knowledge advancement and skills development.
The Skillman network actively promotes and shares initiatives with European/ non-European policymakers with the ultimate objective of investing in people, their skills, and their knowledge to respond to global challenges, maintain social fairness and drive global competitiveness. Riding the wave of transnational mobility and upgrading professional training, the webinar can be considered a part of a longer brainstorming process, which foresees the involvement of key stakeholders with the objective to draft bottom-up policy papers through dedicated, and already established, Peer Learning Clubs (PLCs).
