Building capacities and adopting new approaches

Developing the capacities of TVET leaders and staff is at the core of UNESCO-UNEVOC’s ongoing thematic priorities and its programmatic work. Since 2016, its flagship UNEVOC TVET Leadership Programme has trained more than 200 TVET leaders from over 100 countries. This year, due to the ongoing pandemic, UNESCO-UNEVOC took the decision not to carry out the UNEVOC TVET Leadership Programme in its usual format. Instead, the UNEVOC TVET Leadership Programme 2020 – Special Edition was launched. The Special Edition keeps in mind the programme’s spirit of “moving to action”. Through a call for proposals, UNESCO-UNEVOC invited alumni of previous editions of the programme to put forward activities that would support local networking and capacity building opportunities to address issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Previously, we shared three winning proposals that were focused on teacher training. This time, we highlight the four remaining winning proposals that focus on building the capacities of leaders in change management, developing institutional policies and action plans to respond to the pandemic, and developing relevant online courses.
