UNESCO-UNEVOC organizes consultation workshop on regional plan of action 2013

18 to 21 March 2013, Bonn, Germany

From 18 to 21 March 2013, the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre organized a consultation workshop on the "Regional Plan of Action 2013" at the Centre’s premises in Bonn, Germany. As a follow-up to the International Forum in November 2012, the workshop aimed at discussing the modalities of improving communication, strengthening collaboration and enhancing the capacity of the UNEVOC Network and its respective clusters. Specifically, the objectives of the meeting were to finalize the thematic priority for 2013 in each region; identify and determine ways and means of producing promising practices on the thematic priority; to determine a detailed plan of action regarding the regional conferences to be held in each region; and to discuss issues, concerns and challenges related to Network consolidation.

The meeting was attended by 12 Cluster Coordinators from the Asia and Pacific, Africa and the Latin America and Caribbean region. Various group sessions were organized and revolved around discussing the role of the Coordinators in identifying and gathering evidence of promising TVET policies and practices in the proposed thematic areas in line with the 3rd TVET Congress recommendations, namely youth and skills and greening TVET. In small group sessions, Coordinators were requested to identify regional priorities and share recent initiatives undertaken in their respective clusters. The workshop also provided the opportunity for Network Members to share their concerns with regard to the coordination of the global UNEVOC Network. During the meeting, decisions were made regarding the thematic focus and sub themes, namely:

  • Youth and Skills, with a specific focus on school-to-work transitions and entrepreneurship; and
  • Greening TVET, with a specific focus on teacher training and curriculum development
These sub themes will guide the work of the Cluster coordinators and the International Centre in gathering promising practices and towards the organization of a regional conference to be held in each region later this year.

Earlier this month, Coordinators of the Arab States held a meeting via video conference to discuss the regional plan of action 2013, and Coordinators of the Europe and North America region will meet in April to exchange their plans for the upcoming months.
