Taroudant- The British Council will organize an annual global skills partnership seminar “Bringing the Learning Home 2013”. The seminar, which will be held in Casablanca on November27-28, will focus on international collaboration in the skills sector.
The event, which will host regional and international skills employers and policy makers from “more than fifteen countries”, aims to “facilitate and develop innovative international skills partnerships in the skills sector between organizations in the UK and around the world,” says the Birtish Council in a press release.
“Bringing the Learning Home provides invaluable networking opportunities, and acts as a springboard to the further development of international partnerships,” Ilham Nasser Al Maskari, Coordinator, Higher College of Technology in Oman, said.
According to the news release, the program for the seminar includes “sessions on partnership initiation and development; facilitated networking opportunities with key international stakeholders; and the announcement of funding opportunities to support new partnerships with Morocco in 2014.”
The British Council has been a major partner and sponsor of educational and cultural events and programs organized by different actors in the field of English language teaching and cultural studies in Morocco.
Roland Singer-Kingsmith, who is organizing the conference, and in charge of managing the British Council’s new Skills for Employability program in Morocco, told MWN that the associations and existing project leaders that are working in the education sector in Morocco, more specifically those involved in advancing the English language teaching in the Moroccan schools, “are invited to take part in the seminar which will give them opportunities to create partnerships with the international skills employers and world stakeholders from more than fifteen countries that will attend the seminar.”
