The British Council is holding its 4th Going Global conference at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London on 24-26 March 2010. The conference theme is World potential: making education meet the challenge.
In the biggest economic meltdown in decades, international education faces tough challenges. How can we improve the international mobility of students and employees? Promote partnerships between countries and institutions? Help governments and industry create new strategies and global citizens for the future?
The conference, with more than 1, 000 delegates from over 70 countries, will explore trends and implications, explore models for change, examine barriers and deliver frameworks for action.
The event will include a panel on the impact of 20 years of European policy in vocational education and training, "Skills development : Lessons from the European experience", with the participation of Manfred Tessaring, Head of Research and Policy Analysis at Cedefop".
