Leveraging 4IR for VET in South Africa

Unconference "Leveraging 4IR for VET in South Africa" - Register Today!

Tired of listening to buzzwords, talking about things without actual outcomes and dealing with 4IR without considering the diverse realities of South Africa? Then this might be the event for you:

GIZ SD4GE Unconference: Leveraging 4IR for VET in South Africa. 29-30 October 2019 @HB Connect, Johannesburg

An interactive Unconference on the future world of work and skills development:

  • Experience the revolutionary nature of disruptive technologies based on actual South African implementation experiences – rather than just talking about it!
  • Understand how this will impact future skills demands, the world of work and skills development initiatives.
  • Strategise how to bridge the gap between skills development & work for the different realities in South Africa. 
  • Develop specific collaborative projects, which will be implemented in the lead-up to the HRDC’s Skills Summit in May 2020.

Unconference what does that mean? In an Unconference, you as a participant are invited to reflect and engage with  a given topic on a much deeper level than in a conventional conference. Most importantly, it is about: 

  • Participant-driven: You as an attendee drive the agenda and the discussion points you find relevant within 4IR. Tell us the topics that are of real interest to you in our registration form and start shaping what we do (Register today!). 
     
  • Walk the talk: We can’t talk about the future and innovation without experiencing it. Live technology demonstrations and real life best practices being implemented in South Africa today, will showcase the potential of the future lying ahead. Forget about conventional front-loading-talk-shop of a conference. 

Let's talk purposefully around leveraging 4IR for VET in South Africa

...and come to commitments: Trackable and tangible. In preparation for the HRDC Skills Summit 2020. 

The GIZ Skills Development for a Green Economy (SD4GE II) together with its local partners aims to debunk some of the myths surrounding the 4th industrial revolution and make the digital transformation more tangible for you. And most importantly, work jointly to shape the future of employment-orientated skills development rather than just talking about it.
