World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics


The World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics (WFCP) is an international network of colleges and associations of colleges. WFCP provides leadership in delivering workforce education for our global economy.

Members share leading-edge education strategies and best practices to increase workforce employability in countries around the world. The WFCP is a unifying voice influencing the development of policy. It internationally profiles and promotes the innovative programs of its members.

World Congress

The bi-annual congress is the hallmark of the World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics. Every two years, education professionals gather in a member country to hear the latest trends, best practices and network with their peers in the professional and technical education and training sector. The Congress programs are informed by the Federation’s Affinity Groups and the host nation’s local cultural flair.

The next World Congress is scheduled for the Fall of 2018 in Melbourne, Australia.
