Recommendation concerning TVET (2015)

UNESCO’s first Recommendation in the field of TVET was adopted in 1962 and it was also revised in 1974 and 2001. By comparison, the 2015 Recommendation uses a broader concept of TVET and has a stronger focus on lifelong learning and sustainable development. The Recommendation sets out general principles and goals for TVET, as well as provisions around five important areas:

  • policies and governance,
  • quality and relevance,
  • monitoring and evaluation,
  • research and knowledge management, and
  • international co-operation.
