    From 13 to 16 August 2018, a number of the IVETA Executive Committee were fortunate to attend the 2018 IVETA conference hosted by the South African College Principals Organisation (SACPO) and held in beautiful Cape Town South Africa. Several hundred delegates attended the conference from some 25 countries.

    The conference timing was all the more meaningful because it coincided with the Nelson Mandela Centenary Celebrations . This gave us the opportunity to reflect on his achievements and his belief in education and its life-changing potential for young people.

    Over the course of four days SACPO got the balance of activities exactly right including:

    ·        A wide diversity of stimulating presentations and discussions
    ·        Plenty of networking opportunities and time to visit a great array of exhibitors
    ·        A site visit to False Bay College (more on that later)
    ·        Fun social activities including great music at the reception cocktail dinner and a fantastic guided tour, wine tasting and dinner at beautiful Groot Constantia Estate.

    And it was all hosted and organised with the attention to detail that good conferences need. The venue, facilities, staff and food at the Southern Sun Cape Sun Hotel were exceptional and the SACPO support team were always on hand to ensure smooth running.

    Some of my highlights

    There were so many highlights but here are some particular ones.

    The Minister’s opening address

    The opening address by Ms Naledi Pandor, the Honourable Minister of Higher Education and Training in South Africa who spoke from the heart and with deep insight about the potential for TVET to positively impact on individual lives and on the economic wellbeing of South Africa.

    She delivered such common sense messages about the  need for young people to be creative, responsive, analytical and adaptive and to imagine beyond the present, in our rapidly changing world and she emphasised the importance of supporting and developing colleges and staff – “We who train today have to train for tomorrow”.

    She spoke of how important it is to develop the skills of entrepreneurship that will enable young people to be adaptive, innovative and run their own businesses and she emphasised the imperative to turn around the “deficit notion of TVET”.

    The Minister’s messages really resonated with me and as always when I interact across IVETA’s global networks, I am struck by our shared challenges – our countries and contexts might be very different but our challenges are so similar – we all need skilled teachers who deliver high quality TVET that meets industry, employer and individual learner needs and contributes to building a strong economy.

    This is the value of being part of IVETA’s international network – we can share ideas and solutions for our shared challenges.  I think we should make it our mission to turn the “deficit notion of TVET” described by the Minister into the “value-add of TVET” – the value-add to people’s learning and lives, work, careers and business prospects, to the prosperity of industry and employers and to the economy as a whole.

    The contribution of Professor Cecil Bodibe as Scholar-in-Residence

    Professor Bodibe had several roles in the lead up and during the conference as part of his “overall responsibility to the academic content of the conference” but I particularly enjoyed his summing up each morning of the previous day’s presentations and discussions and his insightful observations.  It’s rare at a conference when it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the richness of information presented, to be offered the opportunity for a concise analysis, debrief and reflection, led by an eminent scholar. Congratulations to SACPO for engaging Professor Bodibe in this role and thank you to the Professor for his contribution.

    Visit to Westlake Campus of False Bay College

    I work in VET policy in Australia and what I always enjoy most at our international conferences is the opportunity to visit a college and see TVET brought to life – when we move beyond “policy frameworks” and see TVET in action on the ground.

    At the beautiful and spacious Westlake Campus of False Bay College staff led us on tours of the electrical workshops, yacht and boat building academy, and the Centre for Entrepreneurship and Rapid Incubator.  I really enjoyed hearing about the College’s approach to providing full access and participation for students with disabilities, learning about the fact that the graduates from the boat building academy are in demand for jobs in the international maritime market, and how the Centre for Entrepreneurship is inspiring and supporting young people to become entrepreneurs and establish their own start-ups – a move towards job creation rather than job seeking.

    A big thank you to the management and staff who generously gave of their time and led the visit.

    Our one disappointment

    The weather defeated us on our last day when delegates were due to visit the Robben Island Museum and high winds and rain led to cancellation of all ferries to the island.  It was to be my highlight of visiting Cape Town, to pay my respects to Nelson Mandela in the year of his Centenary.

    I guess I’ll just have to return to Cape Town!

    Finally

    Once again, thank you to the South African College Principals Organisation from all of us on the IVETA Executive for your warm welcome and wonderful hosting of the 2018 IVETA Conference.  May we continue to learn from the knowledge we gained and the networks we established.

    Candidates for Regional Vice Presidents – Terms to begin Jan. 1, 2019 for two years

    Eastern and Western Africa

    Dr. (Mrs.) Ayonmike, Chinyere Shirley is a Lecturer in the Department of Technical and Business Education, Delta State University, Abraka Nigeria. She is the Head of Unit, Computer Science Education and Co-ordinator, Computer Science Education, Students’ Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) programme.

Ayonmike C.S. is happily married to Joseph and blessed with a lovely daughter Anino.


    EAST ASIA AND THE PACIFIC


    Wendy Cato

    Wendy is a well-respected VET professional who has over 25 years working in the sector as a trainer/ assessor, managed four RTOs as well as providing quality consulting services and professional development services across Australia.  She has been the manager of the Linked In group RTO Professionals Discussion Group for the past 5 years, which has in excess of 5,500 Australian and international members that discuss many topics of relevance to national and international vocational education.

    Wendy is recognised at both national and international levels as a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) specialist and as such has presented at a number of international and domestic forums on RPL including IVETA (Fiji), the Canadian Association of Prior Learning Assessment (CAPLA), numerous VELG National Conferences and the Resources Training Council.

    Wendy’s work during her term as the RTO Manager of Red R Australia (a humanitarian emergency response organisation) involved the identification of the need and processes for the recognition of the unaccredited training that is being broadly delivered by humanitarian agencies across Pacific nations in the areas of Logistics and Emergency Response. The process of RPL (in its various forms) is growing significantly internationally due to increase in people moving across countries / continents either voluntarily or involuntarily (refugees).

    I believe I have much offer to the IVETA committee and IVETA members as a resource in regards to my broad range of experiences and networks.


    EUROPE - One Candidate


    Julian NG

    I have been interested in TVET since I was a young lad. Despite being focused on an academic pathway, I was always encouraged to pursue extra-curricular activities and the breadth of the things I learnt have held me in good stead over the years and helped me to engage with people from all walks of life. I have a strong passion for education – to steer people towards seeing the lightbulbs brighten up with their own eyes, to enable them to discover the learning for their own selves. This, I have been fortunate to engender at all levels in my career as an educator – from kindergarten all the way to University. TVET has the added benefit of being hands-on. This further dimension to learning is an extremely powerful tool. I believe that TVET can show traditional academia that learning does not have to be dry and boring, yet still produce results that are exceptional.  IVETA, being an international organisation, can effect a lot of change. It has a non-partisan approach to learning and collaboration, both of which begin with the Committee and its members. It can link and liaise with governments, organisations and industry. If I am nominated, I would like to encourage more collaboration between members, initiate dialogues with industry and governments on IVETA’s behalf through discrete projects as well as generally. We can only succeed in our mission if we share and work together.


    NORTH AMERICA



    Davison M. Mupinga

    I have been a active member of IVETA for over twelve years and have served the organization in various capacities, first as the IVETA Newsletter Editor and then as Editor of IVETA’s Journal of International Vocational Education and Training (IJVET).  I have extensive background and experience in vocational education and training, starting as a high school vocational education teacher, a community college instructor, and a career and technical teacher educator at universities in Zimbabwe and the United States.  I am currently an associate professor in career and technical teacher education at Kent State University. My research interests are in international technical and vocational education (TVET), specifically, program development and evaluation, and training of TVET teachers, trainers, administrators. In line with the purpose of IVETA, my desires as VP for North America, are to: a) continue creating opportunities for researchers and practitioners to share knowledge and expertise through forums such as conferences, online discussion forums, and conference proceedings; b) promote the IJVET as a tool to disseminate TVET information; and c) liaise with IVETA membership team to increase membership from North America.


    SOUTH ASIA


    Dato Sri Ganes

    My foundation lies in TVET (Technical Education and Vocational Training). I founded and lead SG Education Group since 1999, which is the parent body of several five star rated skills training colleges across Malaysia. Accredited by the Department of Skills Development (DSD), under the purview of the Ministry of Human Resource Malaysia, SG Education is also accredited and recognised by prominent local and international institutions for its remarkable performance in the TVET industry. My goal is developing job-specific and industry centric training as an alternative pathway for those not inclined towards tertiary education. Moving along the transition towards digitisation, I have uniquely incorporated the skills and talents for Digital Economy in the TVET training in order to produce highly demanded workforce in the industry at international arena.

    Further, I have shared, discussed and brainstormed ideas in the IVETA conferences since 2015 and has always been applauded for bringing the most beneficial information that will contribute to the IVETA community in line with its visionary missions. I contributed knowledge and funds to the noble efforts of IVETA with no hesitation, with the sole intention to enhance the preaching and practice of TVET throughout the world.

    If I hold a position as an IVETA Executive Committee, it provides me a greater platform to spread the ideology of modern TVET that will contribute directly towards the nation building in which we recognise IVETA is the key that will open every country’s door to channel and distribute the knowledge and technology for TVET development.


    GENERAL SECRETARY


    Wendy Perry

    Fostering networks, exploring opportunities to collaborate worldwide, and learning from colleagues, all links to IVETA’s position as a leader on the future vision for vocational education and training.

    Developing world-class TVET systems is a key personal goal and with over 22 years’ experience working across all Australian states and territories, and international connections in Bhutan, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore and the USA, I’m keen to see world-leading TVET practice shared through IVETA.

    Working across Education and Training including VET/Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET), Employment and Entrepreneurship, 21st Century Capabilities and Future Jobs, Workforce Planning and Development for Employers and Industry, Regions and Countries, I am the Managing Director of Workforce BluePrint, where I mentor people from all over the world.

    As General Secretary, it is important to record IVETA’s decisions, meetings and planning accurately and in a way that reflects the purposes of IVETA.  A role that through the dissemination of information, engages IVETA members and broader audiences interested in VET.  I look forward to contributing more formally to IVETA, serving members and the international VET community, thank you.
