Webinar 'Industrial Skills Development in Developing Countries: Non-cognitive Skills, Works, and Productivity'

Monday, February 28, 2022
Event Place: 

This online workshop aims to bridge the concept of non-cognitive skills with workplaces, through discussions based on data obtained in the field. Within the area of technical and vocational education and training (TVET), there has been much attention paid recently to non-cognitive skills — the skills that enable workers to appropriately adapt themselves to different situations and collaborate well with colleagues for more effective operation in the workplace.

The workshop will explore how these non-cognitive skills can be developed and adopted in workplaces; and which kinds of skills matter, in which context, and why. It will also discuss how to develop those skills through training. Further information on registration will be posted once available.

Date/Time: 28 February, 2022, 16:00-18:00 (JST)
Further details are available here.

The event is co-organised by Nagoya University, Japan - as part of its Skills and Knowledge for Youth (SKY) Project - and UNU-IAS. The SKY Project has engaged an interdisciplinary team of scholars, with support from UNU-IAS, to apply academic knowledge to solve problems on skills and employment in developing countries.

The SKY project was supported under the Grant for Global Sustainability (GGS), a UNU-IAS initiative building collaboration with research and educational institutions in Japan to contribute to the 2030 Agenda.
