The GIZ TVET Academy is delighted to announce the continuation of the virtual conference and workshop series* on the topic of  “Digitalization and TVET”, which will offer a platform for international exchange, knowledge transfer and networking in the context of international and development cooperation.

*The series started on 25th February 2021 with a Webinar on “Digitalization in TVET - Consequences for Project Design and Implementation” organized in collaboration with the GIZ Sector Project TVET and the GIZ Competence Center Education, Vocational Education and Labor Markets.

The virtual event will consist of three elements:
1. Kick-off: Online Conference o8th September 2021, 08:00–11:30 GMT+2 (Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome) | 13:00–16:30 GMT+7 (Hanoi, Bangkok, Jakarta); Agenda.

2. Follow-up: Parallel Workshops on 19th October 2021

  • Workshop 1: Occupational structures, training contents This session addresses the core issue of how to structure occupational profiles and standards considering the massive changes in the world of work as well as changes in production and business processes by digitalization. Selected examples will reveal the processes and mechanisms behind the adaptation of curricula.
  • Workshop 2: Digital resources, media, tools, platforms Digitalization and the discussion about digital resources, media, tools and platforms belong closely together. Chances are that the challenge posed by digitalization can partly be solved by creating those digital resources media, tools, platforms and making them available. This session will provide with insights into good practices of e-learning up to the use of virtual reality in training processes.
  • Workshop 3: Training processes, didactical concepts, methods, co-operation mechanisms, multiple learning venues How to shape didactical concepts and training processes, methods of learning cooperation and other approaches to learning and training in TVET addressing competence requirements resulting from digitalization is a deeply discussed issue without clear answers. The shaping of learning processes depends on the didactical concepts and methods of learning. This session seeks to find answers on how to shape TVET teaching and learning processes addressing competence requirements that result from digitalization

3. Way forward: Presentation and documentation of recommendations (date tentative)

For further information on topics and contents please find attached the agenda for the kick-off event.


Renowned TVET experts, stakeholders of the TVET system (governmental institutions, business sector, civil society) as well as international organizations, development agencies and development banks are invited to discuss emerging consequences in TVET teaching and management processes caused by increasingly digitalized work processes and how they influence approaches to competence development for TVET personnel.


Conference participants will receive case descriptions and recommendations towards a modern development of TVET teacher training systems, approaches and material as well as corresponding strategies, that could help to prepare TVET institutions for emerging requirements of a digitalized world of work.

for the virtual kick-off conference, after your successful registration you will receive an MS Teams invitation two weeks before the live session.
