Events and seminars

REAL hosts a seminar series which provides a platform for key stakeholders in the broader skills ecosystem to share views and ideas on pertinent issues impacting on the nexus between work/livelihoods and education.

These seminars are therefore designed to encourage participation and interaction amongst academics, researchers, practitioners, government officials, employers and trade unionists. The seminars – some of which seek to provide a platform for engagement around research conducted by REAL and its partners – also seek to offer perspectives and experiences from other countries in the region and beyond.
