Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is seen as a vehicle for improving the labour market outcomes of migrants, disadvantaged youth and marginalized groups. However, vulnerable populations continue to encounter significant barriers when it comes to accessing quality skills training.
Globally, migration has increased due to amplified conflicts, natural disasters and strained economies. In the face of rising demand, many TVET institutions find themselves unprepared to provide pathways to education, training or employment for migrants and unemployed youth. In addition, TVET institutions and teachers can lack practical knowledge and experience in meeting the needs of marginalized groups in traditional learning settings.
UNESCO-UNEVOC works to expand the inclusiveness of TVET institutions through cross-cutting programmes aimed at improving the quality and accessibility of skills training.
Gender equality is a global priority for UNESCO and inextricably linked to efforts to promote the right to education and support the achievement of the SDGs
