Around 800 policymakers, experts and practitioners will gather in Shanghai to:

  • identify and discuss present and future challenges facing the TVET sub-sector and explore appropriate responses;
  • build better understanding of and share knowledge on improving the contributions of TVET to sustainable development; and
  • inform perspectives for international cooperation in the field and define strategic directions for future work and support to TVET at national, regional and international levels.

As a result of the Congress, a new vision for TVET as a quality learning option should emerge. The Congress will also provide directions regarding areas in which policy dialogue and capacity building are required by Member States at the national, regional and international levels.
