"The skills of the future: Contributions from the Ministries of Education and Labour"

16. - 17.05.2019.



Organization of American States-CEATAL-RIAL workshop

Aim of the meeting

Follow up on the dialogue between the Ministers of Labour and Education held at the IACML, and the Intersectoral Workshop on "Youth Employment: Articulation between education and labour" held in Brasilia in December 2016. It would respond to mandates of the IACML and the Inter-American Committee on Education (CIE), as well as to the joint Declaration from COSATE and CEATAL to the XX IACML.

The event will gather technical officers from both Ministries. The Technical Secretariat of the IACML, in consultation with the CIE Secretariat, proposes that the event focuses on analyzing concrete experiences of how "the skills of the future" - referring to technical skills and socio-emotional skills - are being incorporated within education and training systems, especially in technical and vocational education and training (TVET). Inviting private sector actors that are developing training under this approach is also recommended.

The Technical Secretariats of the IACML and CIE will elaborate a more detailed proposal of objectives, partners, etc. This proposal will go through the approval of the CIE of the OAS, so that it may appear in the calendar of the IACML as well as the CIE. This workshop will have as partners the ILO, ECLAC, UNESCO and other international organisations.
