Our Annual Flagship Event – the LKDF Forum

A voice and venue to advance the industrial skills development debate

The Forum of the Learning and Knowledge Development Facility (LKDF) convenes annually under a different theme to uncover the most relevant trends related to demand-oriented industrial skills development.

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

The audience comprises a combination of officials, ranging from Ministers (Foreign Affairs, Industry, Trade, and Commerce, etc.) and high-level dignitaries (such as Heads of United Nations agencies and International Organizations). The LKDF Forum especially gathers representatives from the private sector (companies, associations, and organizations) academia (universities and research institutions) and civil society, non-governmental and intergovernmental organizations. 

The LKDF Forum thus provides a unique and diverse platform for the exchange of views on global industrial skills development. This mix will prove to be a stimulating basis for captivating debates; identifying issues and trends within the industrial skills development agenda, as well as innovative approaches and solutions, and realizing the fundamental role of industry in promoting growth and sustainability.
