Private Sector Engagement for Quality TVET


The private sector has an important role to play in promoting quality TVET both as an employer and a training provider. Aligning existing TVET programmes to industry demand is a top priority as the world of work and training prepares for the post-COVID-19 ‘new normal’. Despite being such key players in TVET reform and implementation at the country level, companies and other development partners have limited venues for interaction and knowledge exchange at a global level. They are often working towards a similar goal – improving the quality of TVET –but have not been visible partners to each other.

UNESCO-UNEVOC recognizes the importance of fostering discussion and engagement with companies (global, local, small and medium-sized enterprises) to ensure TVET is demand-driven and future-focused. To facilitate this collaboration, UNESCO-UNEVOC is working to create a global platform for partnership between private companies and the development community. This platform will provide opportunities for both parties to prepare for the future of work and TVET collectively, and to synergize respective investments at the country level.

To maximize impact, UNESCO-UNEVOC will prioritize the industries most likely to be disrupted by the processes of digitalization, automation and greening.
