Thanks to an initiative of the Minister of Education, Recreation and Sports, Sébastien Proulx, a two-day discussion meeting on vocational training took place on February 5 and 6, 2018, at the Québec City Convention Centre.
This meeting gave participants the opportunity to discuss the main challenges that stakeholders in vocational training will be facing over the next few years, as well as concrete ways of meeting these challenges.
Participants were invited to provide their input on three major topics:
- Partnership-based approaches
- Program offerings adapted to needs in the different regions
- Stakeholders committed to innovation
The Québec government will use the views and ideas shared during these two days of reflection to develop a concerted action plan that will breathe new life into vocational training, making it a key path for the 21st century.
