Greening TVET


Challenges

Sustainable economic growth, as outlined in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, can only be achieved when the world of work transitions effectively towards green and sustainable practices. This transition has the potential to significantly impact global labour markets in the near future.

The transition to green economies will potentially create 24 million jobs by 2030, while 1.2 billion current jobs will also be affected in terms of the skills needed (ILO, 2018).

According to the ILO, eighteen million of these projected new jobs are related to the shift towards renewable energy, energy efficiency and other low-carbon industries. Another six million jobs will result from embracing the circular economy.

Greening TVET describes the efforts of fostering the culture of sustainable practices in TVET and facilitates the transition to climate-resilient societies, greater resource efficiency, and circular economy. TVET is expected to play a key role in preparing learners for emerging green jobs and providing them with green skills and competencies. However, while the demand for green skills is growing globally, TVET systems in many countries struggle to respond and cater to these needs.


TVET response

The BILT Project provides a platform to share and discuss different approaches to embed sustainability in curricula and training regulations, from the identification of specific knowledge and skills applicable to specific sectors, to the integration of transversal skills linked to the awareness about climate change and resource efficiency. TVET stakeholders benefit from working together to identify the most urgent needs, understand how to best embed them in curricula and training regulations, and develop appropriate approaches to pedagogy and the assessment of learning outcomes.

To learn more about successful responses to the greening-related challenges implemented by the institutions of the UNEVOC Network and beyond, please consult the BILT Workshop on Greening summary report and review UNESCO-UNEVOC’s Greening Technical and Vocational Education and Training: A Practical Guide for Institutions. The Greening TVET guide outlines a whole-institution approach to greening TVET institutions, and provides the framework for capacity-development programmes focused on greening campuses, curriculum and training, research, communities and workplace, and institutional culture.
