CVA's PICK OF THE MONTH

Finland. Why the Finns Have Popular TVET
The Finnish example is, of course, no blueprint. Finland has begun to place greater emphasis on entrepreneurship, including incorporating entrepreneurship education into the TVET curriculum. Developing countries also need to address structural issues that impede youth employment.

Free Webinar. Skills on the Move - Migrants in the Survey of Adult Skills, Fri, Nov 9, 2018 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM EST

Migration has been at the centre of political debate across the OECD in recent years. Drawing on data from the OECD Survey of Adult Skills (PIAAC), this report provides new evidence on differences in migrants’ characteristics and contexts and considers how these relate to the skills migrants possess. It also examines the relationship between migrants’ skills and their labour and non-labour market outcomes in host countries. Finally, it sheds new light on how migrants’ skills are developed, used and valued in host country labour markets and societies. Results and lessons gleaned from analysis highlight the way forward for future research on this topic.

Education: the essential foundation for human rights | Vocational education and training - VET | Scoop.it
“Education for freedom does not mean, as it has frequently been thought to mean, a laissez-faire programme of content or of methods of instruction, but the intelligent recognition of responsibility and duty,” wrote the American educator Isaac L. Kandel (1881-1965), in his response to UNESCO’s survey on the philosophical foundations of human rights, sent in 1947, under the title “Education and Human Rights”. Excerpts follow.

Aging employees may be a blessing, not a curse

Aging employees may be a blessing, not a curse | Vocational education and training - VET | Scoop.it
Aging is ubiquitous; that’s why leaders must consider longevity strategies in their organizational plans.

Consider age a blessing, not a curse. Western culture fears aging; witness anti-aging products, serums and supplements to make us look and feel younger. Eastern and Indigenous cultures greatly respect and value their elders and look forward to achieving status in their familial tribe. Westerners need a drastic wake-up call. Aging is not a disability and it will happen to all of us. We need to appreciate the gifts and talents of each age.
