Pratiques prometteuses

UNESCO-UNEVOC identifies and shares promising Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) practices for the benefit of the global TVET community, including policy makers and practitioners. The aim of this database is to share knowledge of established innovative practices that promote TVET in a thought-provoking way within a particular local or regional context.

Promising Practice in Focus – A four-page document that provides a more comprehensive overview of the initiative following interviews with local stakeholders. These initiatives have been selected as part of our “In Focus” series based on the availability of information for further peer learning and a thorough review by knowledgeable TVET experts.

Self-sufficient schools: turning learning into earning and saving




In Latin America secondary school drop-out rates are high, partly because many youth feel that the type of education they receive at school does not offer any guarantee of future employment. Under the Self-Sufficient Schools model, Recognizing the need for practical training that gives youth the skills to find employment or become self-employed, Fundación Paraguaya established the Self-Sufficient School model, providing low-income youth with opportunities to ‘learn by doing, while earning and saving’. Under this model, the schools offer the officially recognized secondary school curriculum as well as training in practical skills such as growing vegetables, raising livestock and crafting furniture. The Self-Sufficient Schools go beyond the type of training provided by conventional vocational training programmes, however, by also providing real-life marketplace contexts that enable students to come into contact with real customers. In such schools, students learn the skills, knowledge and attitudes to become entrepreneurs and they also apply what they learn in a real-life context, where they produce marketable goods and services. The incomes generated in this way go towards school operating costs, thus enabling the schools to become self-sustaining.


Institution: Fundación Paraguaya
Pays:Paraguay
Funding: Initially donor-supported. The first school became self-sustaining in 2007.
Focus: Youth and entrepreneurship
