Dear valued TVET experts and colleagues,
The GIZ TVET Academy is delighted to pre-announce the continuation of the virtual conference and workshop series on the topic of “Digitalization and TVET”, which will offer a platform for international exchange, knowledge transfer and networking in the context of international and development cooperation.
