Revisiting global trends in TVET: Reflections on theory and practice

The essays presented in this e-publication are complementary to the UNESCO forthcoming volume on global TVET trends and issues in UNESCO’s new Education on the Move series. Just like the latter, they cover a wide, although certainly not exhaustive, range of current practices, ideas and debates in the field of technical and vocational education and training (TVET). They come at a time when the importance and value of TVET is being increasingly recognized in the context of lifelong learning in a globalized world, by UNESCO and other national, regional and global stakeholders in education and international development.
