This session launches the publication of a new British Council report on international collaboration models and best practice. The report provides the basis for a wide-ranging debate and analysis by an experienced panel.
International collaboration in vocational education and training can encourage experimentation and innovation through the sharing of expertise. This is all very well, but do time-bound international partnerships and collaboration initiatives focused on short-term objectives have a real impact? Is it possible for such international collaboration to exist after funding has ended? Can international partnerships bring about systemic change and influence national education and training policy? How do we determine whether international partnerships have been successful? Can broader international partnerships which bring together education and industry achieve greater impact?
The panel of organisations, with significant experience of participating in international partnerships and collaboration, debate these questions. They discuss the main features of successful international partnerships and how to build in sustainability from the start.
