In a world undergoing multiple transitions, technical and vocational education and training (TVET) has a critical role to play in the recovery and reshaping of education systems and labour markets worldwide. The COVID-19 pandemic severely exacerbated existing inequalities, as schools, training centres, and workplaces experienced closures around the world, disproportionately affecting young people and vulnerable communities. The global economy is undergoing an unequal economic recovery, following the severe recession in 2020, with less developed economies facing deeper long-term impacts on their learning, training, and unemployment rates.
The new UNESCO strategy for TVET 2022-2029 takes into consideration the present and future priorities of individuals, economies, and societies. Its title, Transforming technical and vocational education and training for successful and just transitions, further captures UNESCO’s expectation that TVET is critical for promoting a path to recovery and resilience building in the post COVID-19 pandemic era, and for accelerating progress towards Sustainable Development Goals 4 and 8 and other related SDGs over the next eight years.
The launch event of the UNESCO strategy for TVET 2022-2029 took place on 25 and 26 October 2022.
