Skills sessions in Going Global 2016
Going Global is an open forum for education world leaders to debate international higher and further education issues and challenges, and to discuss collaborative solutions. It is the centrepiece international education event of the British Council’s calendar and last year attracted over 1000 educational leaders, policy makers and experts from around 80 countries.
Going Global 2016 theme is Building nations and connecting cultures: education policy, economic development and engagement. It will examine non-compulsory education through the following lenses:
Education policy: local priorities, national systems and global drivers
Economic development: skills, enterprise, research and innovation
Engagement: democracy, social justice and international relations
We have three skills focussed sessions that may be of particular interest but broader themes of employability and up-skilling are present throughout the programme.
