TVET Innovation Week 2017

Launched by ACTVET to nationally celebrate the achievements of Technical and Vocational Education and Training, TVET Innovation Week is the first event of its kind in UAE.

TVET Innovation Week aims to engage and inform prospective students about the benefits and advances in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) as well to become the national platform for experts, industry and government leaders, policy-makers, researchers and educators to exchange ideas and expertise on future TVET trends.

The 2017 edition of the TVET Innovation Week will focus on the theme: TVET – Leading the Way to a Sustainable Post-Oil Economy.

The UAE government is actively developing a holistic national post- oil strategy that aims at realizing a sustainable economy for the future generations. It has been continuously highlighted that investment in education and especially TVET is at the forefront of the national priorities in building the capabilities of the national talents to enable them to lead the economy in a sustainable and balanced manner.

The 5-day event consists of the TVET Leaders Forum and TVET Discovery Experience which comprises Mini-Expos, Campus Open-Day, Workshops and Seminars in different locations in the seven emirates. The event will be held in different locations across the UAE from 10th to 16th January 2017.
