As part of its mandate to compile, synthesize and analyse the latest and most important themes in international education, the 2021/22 Global Education Monitoring Report on non-state actors in education reviews a wide range of stakeholders and their activities across all levels of education, with an entire chapter dedicated to non-state engagement within technical and vocational education and training (TVET). The report’s call – Who chooses? Who loses? – invites policy-makers to evaluate the potentials and limitations of non-state engagement in the provision, regulations, governance and financing across all education levels from an equity and quality perspective. The report examines non-state involvement in the design, delivery and funding for TVET. It also provides insights on challenges as well as reflections on improving public and private sector cooperation for TVET.

28 June, 11:00-12:30 CEST


This webinar on "Striking the right balance: State and non-state engagement within technical and vocational education and training" was hosted by the GEM Report and UNESCO-UNEVOC. It examined some of the findings from the report’s analysis on non-state engagement in TVET systems and discussed current policies and initiatives designed to ensure quality, access and equity and what lessons they hold for policy-makers around the globe. #RightTheRules

The event aimed to:

  • Present the report’s relevant findings and recommendations with key stakeholders.
  • Explore concrete examples of approaches taken by countries to engage with non-state actors in TVET policies, regulations and partnerships, aimed to meet changing labour market and economic demands, while also ensuring equity and quality and what lessons can be drawn for others.
  • Introduce the theme of the 2023 GEM Report on technology in education, an area in which there is high involvement and engagement of non-state actors within the TVET sector.

Linking skills to needs with non-state actors – lessons from the 2021/2 GEM Report
Non-state actors are involved in all aspects of education. But for some levels of education, their presence is more evident and even necessary. Both formal and informal TVET are co-dependent on various private and non-state actors’ involvement for quality, effectiveness and relevance of training.
