Description

Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) connects education and the world of work, unlocking the potential of young people and adults for a brighter future. Yet, it is estimated that 267 million young people are not in employment, education or training.

This strategy presents UNESCO's vision to transform TVET for successful and just transitions during the period 2022 to 2029, by promoting skills development for empowerment, productive employment and decent work, and facilitating the transition to more digital, green and inclusive economies and societies.


SHORT SUMMARY 

Unlocking the potential of youth and adults

Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) connects education and the world of work, unlocking the potential of young people and adults for a brighter future. Yet, it is estimated that 267 million young people are not in employment, education or training.

This strategy presents UNESCO's vision to transform TVET for successful and just transition during the period 2022 to 2029, by promoting skills development for empowerment, productive employment and decent work, and facilitate the transition to more digital, green and inclusive economies and societies.

UNESCO will support Member States to respond to current and future challenges in TVET, proposing three main priorities:

  1. Develop skills for all individuals to learn, work and live;

  2. Develop skills for inclusive and sustainable economies and;

  3. Develop skills for inclusive and peaceful societies.

UNESCO will work alongside bilateral and multilateral partners, institutions, governments, the private sector, and educators from all over the world to put TVET at the top of the education agenda.
