About the TVET Forum

The UNESCO-UNEVOC TVET Forum is an online discussion board where TVET experts from around the world can share information and knowledge about different aspects of TVET.

In the TVET Forum, participants have the opportunity to

  • discuss relevant issues for TVET policy-makers, researchers and practitioners;
  • announce international conferences and workshops;
  • inform colleagues on publications and other non-commercial resources;
  • inquire for materials that would be useful for their work, and that may be available abroad, e.g. curriculum materials, samples of legal texts, etc.;
  • find partners for international cooperation in research and development.
The discussions on the TVET Forum are moderated, i.e. all contributions are seen by a moderators team in the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre. This ensures that moderators review postings before they are forwarded to the members of the list, not least to protect them from spam and other inappropriate content.

In order to participate in the TVET Forum you need a UNEVOC account. After creating an account and logging in you will have full access to all TVET Forum messages.

Once you have subscribed to the mailing list, you will receive TVET Forum messages via e-Mail in the form of a daily digest. You can also participate via the online interface only. On average, more than 100 messages are shared every month - each of them reaches more than 6,000 TVET Forum members from more than 180 Countries.

Help and FAQ

Participating in TVET Forum conversations

Once logged in, you can use the online interface to open new threads or reply to messages by clicking the "reply" button at the bottom of a message. We do not normally accept contributions via email.

I do not receive messages

There are cases where receiving servers classify the TVET Forum message digest as spam. In such cases, you can either use a different email provider or use the online interface instead.

I unsubscribed, but I still receive messages

If that is the case, please send an email to unevoc.tvet-forum(at)unesco.org and explain the problem so we can help to get you off the list.

Following the TVET Forum via rss feed

A TVET Forum rss feed is available at http://www.unevoc.unesco.org/unevoc_forum.xml. You will see only the titles of new threads. To read the actual messages, you will have to log in using your UNEVOC account, which will remain functional even after unsubscribing from any mail digest subscriptions. For more information about rss feeds, see http://www.whatisrss.com

I would like to have messages translated

If you wish to follow the TVET Forum in alternative languages, you can use the automatic translation feature of modern browsers. It is easiest with Chrome, but Firefox and Edge also provide such options via extensions (see https://www.thewindowsclub.com/how-to-translate-a-web-page-in-chrome-firefox-and-edge). Due to the questionable quality of automatic translations, this may or may not help in understanding messages.

The Thank you function

Instead of writing "Thank you" in a message, please use the Thank you function to express your gratitude for a contribution.

Support and Feedback

Please address your questions and any other feedback directly to the list managers at unevoc.tvet-forum(at)unesco.org.
