i-hubs Innovative Practices – i-hubs practices are compiled in collaboration with 'Skills for innovation hubs' project partners and are based on the concept of innovation as outlined in UNESCO-UNEVOC's Innovation Framework.
Promising Practices – TVET practices from around the world that have been implemented to address emerging challenges and to contribute to improving TVET teaching and learning in an inclusive way.
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.
