Explore our events below to get a glimpse of our upcoming schedule and to look back on our past initiatives.

The LKDF Forum

The LKDF Forum stands as the flagship event of the LKDF. It convenes annually under a different theme and serves as a venue to discuss some of the most significant developments within the skills development field.

The Forum is an occasion for partners, project teams, training specialists, TVET experts, and interested stakeholders to come together, delve into the importance of skills development, and provide recommendations on ways to assess, develop, and monitor curricula in training activities.
