GAN Argentina, GAN Australia and GAN Guatemala Join GAN Global Board

GAN Global is honoured to welcome three network country representatives onto the Management Board. As the two-year term of GAN Colombia, GAN Malawi and GAN Turkey comes to an end, members thank these three countries for their service. We welcome the following three individuals, as representatives of the host organizations of three GAN Networks, for their future commitments to promote work-based learning, including apprenticeships and adaptive measures to innovate and respond to the many recent changes in workforce development and learning:

At GAN Argentina, our goal is to encourage local companies to commit to training and incorporating young people into the world of work. We create alliances with companies, organizations and training centres to promote early development of professional skills required by the labour market for youth.”
