In an era characterized by fast-paced technological change and growing competition, it is evident that the ‘world of work’ keeps changing at a fast rate. It is also evident that as economic, technological and social developments constantly evolve and diversify, so do the skill requirements in the workplace. For economies to become or stay competitive, it is essential that national TVET leaders are aware of such developments, and have the required management and leadership skills to translate their understanding into action. Worldwide, many TVET institutions are struggling to make the necessary changes to stay connected to global developments. A perceived bottleneck in effecting change in TVET institutions relates to the lack of change leaders, and a lack of capacity to develop a vision and implement change. The UNEVOC TVET Leadership Programme seeks to address this bottleneck by building the capacity of international TVET experts to become change agents in their institutions and countries. For transformative TVET leaders to be effective, they need to have a clear vision, a sound thematic knowledge base to support and defend their vision, and the leadership and management skills to drive change.
The UNEVOC TVET Leadership Programme addresses these three key elements – ‘vision for change’, ‘knowledge for change’, and ‘skills for change’ – in 9 modules over the course of 10 days. The Programme brings together TVET experts and participants in a highly engaging environment, including practical exercises, intense group work, and the sharing of experiences and case studies. International experts lead the modules and special lectures, explaining the latest developments in policy and practice, and present the latest knowledge in their respective fields. A field trip will allow participants to link theory and practice.
Institute of Critical Thinking
Introduction and rationale
The ILO and its Members have decided to implement a Future of Work Initiative that will culminate at the centennial International Labour Conference in 2019. The rationale behind the Future of Work Initiative is to reflect on the transformational changes taking place in the world of work, to understand the processes of change and to respond effectively so as to advance the shared commitment to decent work for all as reflected in the global 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and ILO’s mandate of social justice.
Against this backdrop, the ILO Decent Work Team and Office for the Caribbean together with the ILO Research Department, in partnership with the Sir Arthur Lewis Institute of Social and Economic Studies (SALISES ) at the University of West Indies, are interested in determining the current knowledge on selected key themes - as well as research orientation in the region for the near future - with the ultimate goal of determining research gaps and address them in the most suitable way.
This consultation on the Future of Work in the Caribbean would further inform on a related and relevant research agenda. A report on the findings will contribute towards the ILO global Initiative, including a constituent meeting to be convened by the ILO in 2018. Further research initiatives would be targeted to ILO constituents (government, employers and workers) in the Caribbean. This also responds to the Conclusions of the 10th ILO Meeting of Caribbean Ministers of Labour in February 2017, to mainstream decent work in national development plans; linking research with policy making.
