Digitalization in TVET

Key facts

Five technologies in particular are driving innovation in TVET:

  • Ubiquitous computing
  • Collaboration technologies
  • Extended reality
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Blockchain
ILO, 2020

The digital divide and the uneven access to equipment, tools and skills are the first challenge of digitalization of TVET and skills systems.

ILO, 2021

ICT skills training was reported being the type of professional development TVET teachers needed most.


BILT approach

BILT begins with the premise that the shift to an inclusive digital economy is intricately linked to other significant issues, such as the megatrends of climate change, demographics, and migration. As a result, the BILT project examines how other developments such as sustainability influence and enhance digitalization. The Project places a specific emphasis on the dual transition of digitalization and greening.

This includes conferences on digitalization in TVET, where professionals gather to discuss the trends affecting the TVET sector and exchange information on innovation and learning techniques.

BILT Approach

The BILT conference Mapping current trends in TVET for sustainable and digital transformation created forums for TVET stakeholders to debate innovative responses to digital challenges with the TVET community.

BILT works with TVET experts from Africa, Asia-Pacific, and Europe to explore the dual transition with a particular focus on the economic sectors of tourism and hospitality. This long-term approach to the theme allows the creation of new knowledge relevant for TVET practitioners. Acknowledging the importance of integrating pertinent practices into TVET, BILT Innovation and Learning Practices series highlights how digitalization is incorporated by TVET institutions in the three project regions.

BILT Learning Labs showcasing selected Innovation and Learning Practices offer an opportunity for TVET practitioners to share cutting-edge ideas and debate with the TVET community. The MilleaLab edition highlights how teachers are taught and certified using a cloud-based platform that offers users hundreds of templates and 3D models to construct virtual learning content without the need for coding expertise.

TESDA Online Program

TESDA Online Programme takes advantage of information and communication technology's potential to improve TVET delivery, build future curricula with an eye on sustainability and social development, and establish new policies addressing inclusivity.
