Promising and Innovative Practices in TVET

UNESCO-UNEVOC acts as a clearinghouse for promising and innovative practices in technical and vocational education and training (TVET). These practices have been selected based on their relevance to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and their advancement of youth employment, access to decent work, entrepreneurship and lifelong learning opportunities.

Preparing learners for real-world problems




One of the main goals at Nigeria’s Yaba College of Technology (YCT) is to utilize its role as a TVET institution to meet the needs of the community and to help solve some of the most pressing issues at the regional and national level. These include improved food security, a reduction in unemployment and a decrease in environmental pollution. Projects at YCT are guided by market research demands, giving students experience in addressing real-world problems and a sense of the wider impact of their TVET experience.

Since the introduction of the YCT Applied Research and Technology Innovation (ARTI) Centre in 2006, demand-driven research has shaped the curriculum and laid the foundation for a series of projects that provide students with professional training in a real-world setting.
