Trends in digital skills training for TVET teachers and trainers

Harnessing the benefits and tackling the challenges of digitalization depends largely on the digital capacities and capabilities of TVET teachers and trainers. To prepare learners to function effectively in today’s digitalized workplace and digital society, TVET teachers and trainers need to be able to:

  • apply new pedagogical approaches, instructional tools and/or educational technologies to deliver learner-centred, future-oriented teaching and training; and
  • competently use digital tools, technologies and resources to deliver pedagogically effective online or offline distance learning.
TVET teachers and trainers also need not only training on how to apply digital tools and services to improve students' acquisition of knowledge and skills, but also time to integrate digital tools and technologies into their teaching and learning practices. They also require technical support to quickly overcome issues when they arise.

The UNESCO-UNEVOC trends mapping study on digital skills development in TVET teacher training provides a snapshot of trends and challenges before and during the COVID-19 pandemic, and examines how countries have responded to the need to move to remote learning environments. The study also provides some examples of how TVET teachers and trainers have been supported to develop the skills and competencies needed to use digital tools, services and technologies to deliver quality, learner-centred education and training.
