Teachers' Week 2016 under the theme "La Réussite de Mes Etudiants, Mon Engagement" will this year be celebrated from Sunday 2nd to Saturday 8th October 2016.
The Education Conference 2016 which will span over two days will be officially launched on Monday 3rd October at 3pm at the International Conference Centre Seychelles (ICCS). The conference under the theme "Transforming Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) in Seychelles: Building Skills for Work and Life." will feature as one of the key activities of the week.
This year's theme has been chosen in an effort to leverage and improve the image of TVET in Seychelles and to significantly increase the participation of key stakeholders and providers in such a process.
The Keynote address of the conference will be presented at the launching by Honorary Research Fellow, Work-based Education, Mr Hugh Guthrie from the University of Melbourne, Australia. The focus of the Keynote will be on Global development and their implications for TVET in Seychelles. This will be followed by other presentations and deliberations on the second day.
