Digitalization is reshaping millions of jobs. To remain relevant to the changing world of work and attractive to learners, there is a growing need for TVET teachers and trainers to understand the application of digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence, robotics, 3D-technologies and augmented and virtual reality, and to have up-to-date digital competencies.
The Bridging Innovation and Learning in TVET Project (BILT) provides an opportunity to learn about digitalization-related challenges and share innovative initiatives implemented by TVET institutions to address these challenges.
Agile and innovative TVET institutions are well placed to cope with the increasing dynamics of technological developments. Regardless of the starting point in their digitalization journey, it is useful for TVET institutions to assess their current status and develop an action plan to reach the next level.
The UNESCO-UNEVOC Innovation Framework provides an innovation toolbox for institutional self-assessment. Using selected indicators, it helps institutions assess their leadership and organizational practices, their teaching and learning processes, their products and services, and their skills and innovation ecosystem. Using the results, institutions can develop an Innovation Action Plan that guides their further institutional development.

As in all fields of education, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a shift towards distance learning in TVET. This poses a particular challenge due to the hands-on nature of TVET and the major adjustments needed to deliver practical training components via distance learning.
To guide TVET institutions, teachers and learners in identifying suitable tools for distance learning, UNESCO and the EdTech Hub have developed a growing database of resources.
This list of distance learning solutions, compiled as part of UNESCO’s COVID-19 Education Response, also provides useful information on distance learning tools.
Despite all technological advances, teachers and trainers are at the heart of modern and successful TVET. Our recent trends mapping study on the Future of TVET teaching shows the particular need for in-service teacher training.
The following report presents the results of the trends mapping study on the future of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) teaching, conducted by UNESCO-UNEVOC. The study aimed to engage the international TVET community to: (i) imp ...
