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.

Work-based learning and skills demonstrations during COVID-19




In Finland, TVET students learn and are assessed by a teacher and working life representative in work-based situations where they must demonstrate skills and competencies through practical tasks in order to graduate from their course. Therefore, making work-based learning opportunities available was of great importance once the COVID-19 crisis began.

The COVID-19 crisis not only caused TVET institutions to transition to distance learning, but also affected the operations of the companies and organizations where students complete their work-based training. It was important to find flexible solutions that would allow work-based learning and skills demonstrations to continue despite the crisis, and thus ensure students' graduation.
