Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hazza Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, the Abu Dhabi Center for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (ACTVET) organizes the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) one of its kind event on a yearly basis.
TVET INNOVATION WEEK is a national platform that brings together experts, industry representatives, government leaders, entrepreneurs, policy-makers, researchers, students and educators to exchange ideas and expertise on a range of critically important themes in the various fields that make up Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in the 21st Century.
The event aims also at informing prospective students about the advances in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and the benefits of enrolling in this type of education. Most importantly, the initiative aspires to bridge the gap between industry and educational institutes through encouraging partnerships and presenting best practices and lessons learnt in this area.
This national event is directly aligned with the directives of the national agenda - ABU DHABI ECONOMIC VISION 2030 which prioritizes the development of resilient infrastructure capable of supporting anticipated economic growth and developing a highly skilled and productive work force.
TVET innovation week consists of TVET Leaders Forum and the Discovery Experience.
