Skills development in the time of COVID-19

Taking stock of the initial responses in technical and vocational education and training

This report is based on the findings of an interagency survey on technical and vocational education and training (TVET) and skills development in the time of COVID-19. The online survey, which was targeted at TVET providers, policymakers and social partners, was implemented by the ILO in collaboration with the UNESCO and the World Bank over the period from 5 April to 15 May 2020.

The survey, which collected data from 1,353 respondents, representing 126 countries from all over the world captured the main challenges faced by TVET institutions during this crisis and brought to light innovations in teaching and learning. The report is intended to help all those concerned to address current and future crises in their delivery of TVET and to manage the learning and training process effectively and to a high standard. Lessons may also be drawn for the post-crisis period, to strengthen the resilience and responsiveness of TVET systems and to inform broader reform efforts.
