Promising Practices in TVET

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.

REACH - Building the skills of disadvantaged youth


Initiative acts to:
  • Ensuring equal access to the TVET system for all, including disadvantaged and vulnerable groups

Initiative description
As Viet Nam’s economy has modernized, demand has increased for skilled labour, with the result that unskilled youth have few prospects for finding formal employment. REACH is a local non-governmental organization that trains young people, particularly those from low-income households, in service industry and ICT skills, so as to give them a better chance of obtaining employment. Training courses include food and beverage service, beauty spa and makeup, sales and marketing, web and graphic design, hairdressing and nail art, and housekeeping. In addition to practical and technical training, the courses include modules on good work habits and attitudes; ‘soft skills’ training; and life skill components, such as preparing curriculum vitae (CV), problem-solving and time and money management. To ensure a low dropout rate, REACH actively supports and counsels the trainees throughout. In partnership with over 1,000 companies, REACH identifies the skills that are in demand, develops matching curricula, and assists graduates to find employment. In 2016, 80 per cent of graduates had found employment within six months.
