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.

Initiative description
Access to technical and higher education along with skills development programmes have become important tools to tackle poverty in Brazil. By recognizing that innovation takes place at the forefront of learning, PICG Innovation Hub enables its students to develop creative practical solutions utilizing science and technology. Student-led projects range from partnerships with low income communities to the development of innovation projects with engineering companies. The technology that students develop with private sector companies allows the application of low-cost solutions that benefit rural communities.
