Consolidation Workshop - UNEVOC Network in Europe

13-14 March 2018

Bonn, Germany

As part of UNESCO-UNEVOC's efforts to strengthen the engagement of European UNEVOC Centres in Europe, a European UNEVOC Network Consolidation Workshop was held at the UN Campus in Bonn. This workshop aimed at strengthening cooperation and policy learning in TVET within Europe. The opportunity was also taken to involve UNEVOC Centres from Africa and Asia in the discussions, to facilitate future cross-regional collaborations with the European UNEVOC Cluster.

This discussions at this workshop were guided by the responses received from the UNEVOC Network members in the Europe, where they identified key thematic interests and needs as established in UNESCO-UNEVOC's Medium Term Strategy (2017-2019). These included: Industry 4.0; Entrepreneurship; Migration and Skills; Greening TVET and, Attractiveness of TVET.

The discussions focused on taking stock of the expertise and challenges faced by the UNEVOC Centres in each of these thematic areas, to identify opportunities for a collaborative response. Within the framework of UNESCO-UNEVOC's Medium Term Strategy (2017-2019), the participants discussed the development of activities, products and services that can facilitate knowledge exchange and build capacity among TVET institutions engaged in the transformation of TVET in Europe. The rich inputs provided during the workshop also enabled the identification of UNEVOC Centres that can help develop such activities, products and services, while agreeing upon a roadmap for further action.
