Dublin Institute of Technology

A New UNEVOC Centre

Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) has been appointed the first UNEVOC Centre in Ireland. The Institute joined the UNEVOC Network in January 2007.

As the UNEVOC National Centre for Ireland, DIT will engage in information generation and dissemination by engaging in research and scholarship collaborations and partnerships, and organising events and activities relating to TVET. The initial priority areas of interest will be pedagogy, quality and best practice in TVET.

Commenting on the appointment, Professor Brian Norton, President of DIT said; “DIT is in a unique position to make a positive contribution to the development work of UNESCO-UNEVOC. The Institute has over 100 years experience in the delivery and provision of TVET and a reputation for excellence in apprenticeship, skills and craft education. We look forward to sharing our knowledge and learning from the rich cultural and ethnic diversity of other UNEVOC Centres”.

Rupert Maclean, Director of UNESCO-UNEVOC, said: “It is with immense pleasure that I announce that the Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland, has become a UNEVOC Centre. By becoming a UNEVOC Centre, it joins an international network in the area of technical and vocational education and training (TVET). The accession to the UNEVOC Network follows on the endorsement of the nomination by the Irish National Committee for UNESCO”.

The Skills Research Initiative (SRI) whose primary role is to carry out research and scholarship relating to TVET has being appointed the official DIT point of contact for UNEVOC Network activities.
