Abstract
The potential pivotal role that technical and vocational education and training (TVET) can play in sustainable development is becoming increasingly apparent. The Millennium Development Goals have been a significant force within international development but many countries will not have achieved all these goals by the deadline of 2015. Innovative ways of working together are needed for African economies to intensify efforts towards rapid growth and development of a workforce that is empowered with continuously upgraded skills and knowledge, to enhance the attainment of their development goals. This includes a much stronger focus on innovation for lifelong learning in TVET, and technology for growing and improving TVET programme delivery in particular. This paper considers the role of innovation and technology in the integration of generic and specific skills for sustainable development into the TVET curriculum and asks how can COL support CAPA partners in their contribution to sustainable development. // Presented at the CAPA Conference, Entebbe, Uganda, 9-10 December 2014. // Access related working paper at http://hdl.handle.net/11599/2676
