Promising and Innovative Practices in TVET

UNESCO-UNEVOC acts as a clearinghouse for innovative and promising practices in technical and vocational education and training (TVET). These practices have been selected based on their relevance to SDGs 4, 5 and 8, and their promotion of a positive image of TVET. They come from a variety of sources including the BILT and i-hubs projects.

The Australian Apprenticeships Ambassadors Programme




Australia has a well-established apprenticeships system, but a steady decline in the enrolment rate has raised concerns. One of the main causes of this decline is the negative public perception of apprenticeships. The Australian Apprenticeships Ambassadors Program aims to raise their status. The programme recruits prominent figures and high-performing former apprentices and trainees as ambassadors, and then organizes events and business forums where ambassadors showcase the apprenticeship system. As of 2017, the programme has more than 200 active ambassadors who have appeared at numerous events organized by the Department of Education and Training, as well as at local events. The events are promoted via social media. An online platform increases the programme’s outreach, sharing success stories about former apprentices and enabling the public to invite ambassadors to their local events. As of 2017, the programme has reached 6 million people across Australia.
