On Wednesday 15 November, UK NGO Teach A Man To Fish is bringing together leaders in international development, business and education to discuss the skills students around the world need to combat youth unemployment.
Over the past 10 years, Teach A Man To Fish has hosted the annual Education That Pays conference in different countries across the developing world. But this year’s conference, with the theme “Learning for Life: Entrepreneurship, Employability and Skills for Success”, will be the first to take place in London.
Charles Perry, green entrepreneur and international sustainability leader, will be chairing a panel of speakers from the government, corporations and foundations. Among the panellists is Natasha Kwawka, who leads the international girls’ empowerment programme ‘Goal’ at the Standard Chartered Bank. Dr Rebecca Montacute, a research fellow at The Sutton Trust, and Davelyn Thompson who manages DFID’s Higher Education programme will participate as well.
Winning teachers from the School Enterprise Challenge - Teach A Man To Fish’s school business awards programme - will also be sharing firsthand experience of leading student business teams and the impact of enterprise education on students. Jose Adolfo Quisocala Condori, a 12-year old manager for his school’s student bank in Peru, will be joining the panel of teachers.
Delegates from the British Council, Ashoka, Aflatoun, Fundacion Paraguaya, Opportunity International, PwC, Enabling Enterprise, Y Care International and many more will be presenting talks throughout the day.
The conference will be taking place at the offices of Norton Rose Fulbright, London Bridge. To register, click HERE.
