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.
