Issue #11 - September 2022

Dear readers,

The UNESCO strategy for TVET 2022–2029, set to be launched in October in Bonn, considers a path to recovery, resilience building and the reimagining of education and training, as well as the critical role that technical and vocational education and training can play on this journey.

The title of the strategy, ‘Transforming TVET for successful and just transitions’, signals UNESCO’s recognition of the important contribution that TVET is expected to make to post-COVID-19 recovery and to sustainable development over the next eight years.

These interconnected themes of recovery and resilience are at the core of UNEVOC’s activities, particularly in terms of developing skills for the green transition, raising the digital competencies of TVET staff and fostering the ability to adapt in the face of disruptive challenges. This multifaceted approach to capacity building is geared towards strengthening resilience at the individual, institutional and systemic level.

Building on the momentum of the recently concluded Transforming Education Summit and the call to reboot education systems worldwide, we look forward to working together to identify concrete actions to support the implementation of the new strategy and to encourage a renewed ambition for TVET in Member States.

Best wishes from the UNESCO-UNEVOC team
