We invite participation from Asian Commonwealth countries viz, Bangladesh, Brunei Darussalam, India, Malaysia, Maldives, Pakistan, Singapore, and Sri Lanka. The competition is designed as an online festival of skills wherein every participant gets to showcase their skills through a short video of 5 minutes. The content generated from the Skillsfest will be included in the CEMCA’s Open Educational Resources (OER) repository for TVET.
Skillsfest 2023 – First Edition is a joint initiative of the Commonwealth Educational Media Centre for Asia (CEMCA) regional centre of the Commonwealth of Learning and National Skills Network – NSN, India to create awareness about the growing importance of skills in our lives. We strongly believe that skills are free from age, nationality, culture, experience and formal education and knowledge is free to share under Open Educational Resources (OER). And, it is this universal aspect of skills we want to promote and recognize through the competition.
