As part of our Skills for Employability programme in Mexico, the British Council is facilitating a study tour in the UK and follow up workshops in Mexico, to share and develop effective approaches to skills development that provide young people opportunities to increase their employability.
The study tour in the UK and workshops in Mexico will include information on the following areas:
- Aligning occupational standards with employer needs
- Exploring the role of Sector Skills Councils generally, and the work they do to develop Labour Market intelligence and occupational standard improvement more specifically,
- Introducing the UK apprenticeships model
- Exploring other ways in which UK employers contribute to vocational education and employability and careers advice
