Toolkits for TVET providers

This online platform was launched in 2022 to provide TVET stakeholders and practitioners with information on, and access to, online, free-to-use toolkits. Multiple toolkits for TVET providers/practitioners have been, and continue to be, created. The purpose of such toolkits ranges from facilitating TVET providers' 'self-reflection' on aspects of their provision to quantitative performance assessments. Some toolkits have a thematic focus (e.g. on digitalization or greening) whereas others have an organizational focus. For some themes, there are multiple toolkits, for example to assess and/or reflect upon teacher/trainer training needs. The purpose of this database is to bring the many and varied toolkits into one place and to provide a guide and resource for:
  • TVET practitioners seeking a ready-made guide or self-assessment tool on themes such as digitalization, greening and inclusion; and
  • researchers and policy makers seeking to design new organizational assessment tools for their TVET providers.
In the table below, you can find a summary of the toolkits and a link to each one.
