The Mini-Skills Academy was organized to address the challenges facing Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates), such as outdated curricula, absence of continuous professional development and poorly equipped schools, poor coordination, and collaboration between TVET and the private sector restricting TVET responsiveness to the labour market. The aim of the academy was to facilitate building of partnerships with trainers and other experts in the region, and among institutions in the spirit of South-South cooperation. The academy also created a platform for open discussion among participants to share knowledge and experiences and identify ways to address common challenges and replicate good practices through the establishment of an online community of practice.
