TVET professionals and policy makers around the world took part in BILT’s biennial learning forum from 7–9 December 2021. Some watched the sessions in the middle of the night, engaging in the online chat facility and networking in cyberspace. Experts, many from UNEVOC Centres in Africa, Asia-Pacific and Europe, offered participants a wealth of stimulating material about the future world of education and changing skill needs that are emerging from environmental and digital trends in the economy.
It is not just about jobs. Future TVET programmes should aim to help all learners adapt to new societal trends and become active citizens. TVET has the potential to contribute to greater equality by helping to bridge the digital and gender divides and foster more inclusive societies.
TVET providers spearhead the Three Is process, yet their voices are not always as loud as other stakeholders. To drive the agenda forward, they need help. Therefore, the first concrete action in response to their demands is to turn the findings from the volume dedicated to TVET providers and alike into a self-reflection tool to assess how prepared these institutions are to contribute to the Three Is process. This initiative will be conducted with institutions from across the globe, which are the key to unlock the full TVET potential.
2022 will be another busy year!
