Organising for change: how can higher education meet the changing needs of employment

Monday 13 – Wednesday 15 November 2017, Pretoria, South Africa

Please note this is an invitation-only seminar.

The ACU recognises the huge demands now being placed on higher education to produce graduates capable of meeting the requirements of employment. We also recognise that universities throughout the Commonwealth are producing much good practice in the field, which we believe deserves exposure to a wider audience.

The ACU is therefore partnering with Wilton Park, the UK Department for International Development, National Research Foundation (South Africa), and the University of Pretoria to stage a high level international seminar. Delegates will include leading practitioners, policymakers and donor agencies.

Results from the seminar will be circulated to the full ACU membership and may be presented at the 20th Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers (20CCEM) in Fiji in February 2018.

The seminar will convene 50 delegates, with 20 coming from ACU member institutions.
