The board of the World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics (WFCP) invites you to the 2020 Congress in San Sebastian, Spain in October. Our vision for the congress is TVET Excellence for All.

Technical and Vocational Education and Training transforms lives. Our colleges, polytechnics and institutes must be the key in supporting students acquire the knowledge and skills they need to succeed. In a world where disruption from automation and Artificial Intelligence is on the rise and global trade brings economic transformation to communities, technical and vocational education is a crucial response.
The congress will explore TVET Excellence for All across three sub-themes:

TVET in a global economy.
Inclusiveness in TVET.
Platforms of excellence in TVET.

The work of WFCP is designed to support progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Congress brings together representatives of associations of colleges and polytechnics, leaders and faculty from individual colleges and polytechnics as well as stakeholders who play such a vital part in the success of TVET.

Our gathering in San Sebastian from 11-16 October 2020 includes the main Congress program featuring world-class speakers as well as break-out sessions where best practice is shared. It also includes a leadership institute, site tours, a gala banquet to celebrate the federation’s Awards of Excellence, the gathering of WFCP Affinity Groups which explore issues of significance in TVET, and a youth residential program.

TKNIKA of the Basque country is looking forward to hosting you. TKNIKA is recognised across the globe as a centre of excellence in TVET delivery and applied research and innovation.

We extend a warm invitation to you to come to the Congress. TVET colleges and associations from across Europe are especially encouraged to attend and connect with TVET practitioners from the WFCP. You can’t afford to miss the Congress. Make your plans now. The board looks forward to seeing you in San Sebastian.
