Why BILT?

To remain relevant for the world of work and attractive to learners, modern TVET systems need to adapt to new technologies and structural changes in the labour market. A main challenge of TVET is to create modern professions and career paths which attract and integrate youth. With ever-faster innovation cycles, the demand for peer learning is increasing, both in Europe and internationally.

In the European UNEVOC Network, there is already a wealth of expertise in addressing TVET challenges, but little space to exchange on the experience of implementing new ideas and concepts. Such an exchange, however, could help improve and speed-up relevant action to ensure modern and relevant TVET both in Europe and beyond. The BILT project seeks to enable exchange of experiences and peer learning across the UNEVOC Network and beyond in the thematic areas of Greening, Digitalization, Entrepreneurship and Migration. The work stream on New Qualifications and Competencies serves as an overarching topic and is informed by the other work streams.

BILT In Action

Project Timeline

The BILT project focuses on consolidating the European UNEVOC Cluster. A bridging component with UNEVOC Centres from Africa and Asia-Pacific begins in 2020. The phasing in of the inter-regional collaboration was initiated during the official BILT Launch on 2 December at UNESCO-UNEVOC in Bonn, Germany.

To strengthen the capacities of the European cluster of the UNEVOC Network, a series of workshops were held in Europe during October-December 2019, where thematic experts presented and exchanged on their innovative examples in the areas of Digitalization, Greening, Entrepreneurship, Migration, and New Qualifications and Competencies in TVET:

The BILT Team

The BILT project is carried out in collaboration with the UNEVOC Network members, coordinated by UNESCO-UNEVOC with support of the German Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (BIBB) and sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
