Fostering a value-driven TVET culture in a rapidly changing context

While knowledge and skills are the hallmarks of TVET, values get us out of bed in the morning, since they give meaning to our life and work. Our values motivate us in everything we do and drive each decision we make, whether we’re aware of it or not. In this session, we will explore:

  • the key values that TVET can foster to facilitate workforce transformation in an unprecedented context of rapid socio-cultural, technological and economic change
  • examples of how these are modeled in practice in the TVET environment, and
  • how values contribute to quality training and a high performing institutional and workplace culture.
