UNESCO-UNEVOC TVET Leadership Programme 2022 

Managing change through transformative TVET leadership

The UNESCO-UNEVOC TVET Leadership Programme aims to build the capacity of TVET leaders and professionals from around the world, as well as support them to become successful and effective agents of change in their institutions and beyond. The potential success of these change processes largely rests with the TVET leaders responsible for converting policy into practice.

Since 2016, UNESCO-UNEVOC has trained and supported over 650 TVET leaders, managers, and staff from more than 95 countries through the global, regional, national, and online editions of the UNESCO-UNEVOC TVET Leadership Programme. Would you like to participate in this unique programme? Applications are now open! Please find the link to the application form at the bottom of the page.

November 2022 - February 2023

This edition of the UNESCO-UNEVOC TVET Leadership Programme focuses on:

Re-thinking TVET systems and programmes to anticipate demand, adapt and take action for a just and green transition

Catastrophic trends caused by climate change are harming people and ecosystems around the world. Shifts in temperatures and weather patterns have impacted people’s lives, jobs and long-term access to finite resources. The degree of planetary heating is causing more damage as sea levels rise, biodiversity loss worsens, and ecosystems cease functioning.

As a result, businesses, communities and societies must now accelerate their climate mitigation and adaptation response. To facilitate these processes, the worlds of work, education, and training are all expected to transform. Now is the time to change mindsets and promote green skilling and education before it is too late.  

Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) also faces a new wave of expectations and challenges to help accelerate climate learning and the acquisition of green skills. More than ever, there is a need to implement green practices and support the creation of green jobs. Implementing education for sustainable development in TVET can enable institutional transformation. This relies on built capacities to teach, learn and engage in sustainability actions that help decarbonize the economy, adapt current practices and find new solutions to reduce the environmental impact of our daily activities. 

Against this backdrop, this year's edition of the TVET Leadership Programme will focus on education for sustainability and the green transition. It seeks to address the knowledge gap on system-level change by raising awareness and developing capacities that will empower TVET professionals to support the green transition in their institutions.

Programme Structure

This edition's programme will take place online from November 2022 to February 2023.

The programme is divided into two learning blocks. Each learning block consists of two modules that aim to support the transformation of institutions into effective spaces for learning about sustainability and climate responsibility.

Learning Block 1 (2 modules):

  • Familiarizes learners with greening concepts and trends. Notably, those that are impacting the labour market and society;
  • Introduces learners to the tools that will prepare and support TVET systems to adapt.
Kindly note that enrolment in Learning Block 2 is subject to participants’ attendance of two live webinars and review of a completed assignment from Learning Block 1.

Learning Block 2 (2 modules):

  • Equips learners with more in-depth knowledge of the practical uses of the tools, methodologies and practices adopted in different TVET settings;
  • Supports the development of a theory of change that can help participants apply their newly gained knowledge and skills in the form of action plans.
Completion of the TVET Leadership Programme is subject to the attendance of four live webinars and review of a final project assignment due on 28 February 2023.


Module 1 The implementation for a green transition
Module 2 Changing the institution’s DNA
Module 3 Learning from methods and practice
Module 4 Managing institutional change

Learning resources and pre-recorded videos will be accessible to enrolled participants in a self-paced learning approach. In the live webinars, learners will be able to deep dive into relevant topics and discuss key learnings and experiences in a group setting. Experts will also be available to answer participants’ questions. Facilitated discussions with experts will be moderated, and interactions with peers will take place via group work and assignments.  

Participants are expected to attend all live webinars. The duration of each webinar is approximately 150mins. Participants will need to spend about 4-5 hours per week reviewing the modules’ content and other requirements. Participants are also expected to produce outputs at the end of module 2, and a final project at the end of the last module.

Participant Profile

The programme targets mid-to senior-level TVET managers, leaders and professionals from UNEVOC Centres and other TVET institutions. Candidates should be in a position to formulate strategies and policies, as well as lead change and decision-making processes. Their participation is intended to effectively inform their current level of responsibilities and priorities, adapt their skills development approaches and orient their actions for the green transition.

Live Webinar Schedule

The four live webinars are organized to cater for different time zones: 9:30-11:30 and 15:00-17:00 UTC/GMT +1 (Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome time). Therefore, each webinar will be held two times on the same day. Upon selection into the course, you will be enrolled in one of the two batches, where you will remain for the entire programme duration. Please note that the live webinar content will be the same across the two batches. As a result, you only need to attend 1 live webinar per module.
