Also, in the past few decades, there has been a greater global acceptance of the importance of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) to the long-term growth, development, and progress of nations. The Tertiary and Vocational Training Commission (TVEC) introduced the National Vocational Qualification (NVQ), which is primarily targeted at GCE (A/L) students and GCE (O/L) dropouts. This was a truly helpful move in the direction of improving vocational education. Those who chose to continue with vocational education after secondary school have a strong vocational background because of the certification from levels 3 to 7. A person’s career will be shaped by their decision over whether to pursue vocational training or traditional college education.
In the U.S. the cuts were swift, as affected workers were notified by email and locked out of their company accounts. Twitter has asked U.K. employees facing layoffs to nominate someone to represent them for this consultation, the BBC reported Nov. 6. Following this patchwork of global labor laws makes carrying out layoffs abroad costly and time-consuming for companies. Should the company fail to comply with labor laws outside the U.S., its workforce reduction could become more litigious and expensive. The company could be subject to unlawful dismissal claims from employees abroad, as well.2 months ago Observer
Senegal begin their World Cup campaign against the Netherlands on November 21 and also face hosts Qatar and Ecuador in Group A, with Mane set to join a high profile list of players missing FIFA’s tarnished showpiece event. France midfielders Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante, Germany’s Timo Werner and Liverpool’s Portugal forward Diogo Jota have also been ruled out of this ill-conceived World Cup. “It’s an absolute disgrace that the World Cup is in the position that it’s in,” Carragher told CBS Sports. “Players all around Europe and the world could get injured... a ten-day injury is going to keep players out of the World Cup, which should not be happening. “There is no build-up to the tournament, no real excitement for it and this is the World Cup.2 months ago Sunday World

In fact, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was the address of an Ivy League college on the edge of some American city. LEAN BEAN Unit 3, 8 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24 4.5 Stars Food: €20.70; Drinks: €5.90Having experienced a semester in a US college, that’s pretty much what hit me when I ventured through a maze of roads in Citywest recently. And I have to say when we discovered that counting calories could prove tasty rather than tedious, while also thoroughly enjoying an especially healthy brunch, Lean Bean took us completely by surprise. There are four meat-free calorie-counted meal offerings, with a separate menu for protein additions — lean chicken and turkey or vegan falafels. Now I have a new regular stop-off, and a reminder of how delicious so-called “healthy” food can be.3 months ago Sunday World
