TVETipedia glossary

UNESCO-UNEVOC's TVETipedia is more than a glossary. It is a collection of more than 1,000 terms that are relevant in the area of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET). This includes normative instruments, international TVET actors, and Regional Qualifications Frameworks. The aim of this glossary is to help create a common TVET language and to reduce misunderstandings in global TVET discussion. This will improve communication, discussion and debate amongst TVET experts from different parts of the world.

For each term, the glossary provides one or more definitions from a variety of reputable sources. For every definition, a reference is provided and linked. Icons signify the nature of the respective source:

    Other glossaries
Normative or standard-setting instruments
Technical articles
Key websites.
