Against the backdrop of increasing unemployment on the African continent, the most important current conversation is around upskilling and the relevance of qualifications to industry needs. The importance of collaboration between industry and academia in preparing young people for the world of work and the job market of today and tomorrow cannot be underestimated.
This summit will bring together a blend of multilateral stakeholders including university leaders and business leaders, with a strong focus on industry participation. Globally, unless the issue of unemployment, particularly among the youth, is addressed with urgency, it will lead to broader social issues.
Join educators and sector leaders from around the globe as they lead focused discussions on topics directing the evolution of the education sector, such as:
*Reskilling Revolution & the Role of Career Planning
*Aligning Academia with Industry Needs
*Action to Halt the Widening Skills Gap
