Organized by UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training and moderated by Gita Subrahmanyam
The UNESCO Recommendation concerning technical and vocational education and training (TVET) (2015) highlights the role of teachers and instructors in improving the overall quality and relevance of TVET systems and training provisions. The recommendation focuses on the importance of making technical and vocational education and training ‘future ready’ and accordingly preparing the teaching staff for designing and implementing quality TVET.
Ongoing TVET reforms have resulted in the expansion of support mechanisms for teaching staff in many countries, specifically concerning new pedagogies, curricula and use of technologies. However, various dimensions of the future of TVET teaching and learning are yet to be fully unpacked.
This virtual conference seeks to gather knowledge, insights, experiences and promising practices from the international TVET community on the future of TVET teaching and learning in the context of global disruptions and a rapidly changing labour market. The conference will explore what skills are likely to be needed for the future of work and what steps TVET systems need to take – at policy, provision and practitioner levels – to prepare teachers and trainers to deliver these skills. The discussions will focus on four broad areas that have been identified as crucial for 21st century skills development: green skills, ICT/digital skills, entrepreneurship and education for sustainable development (with a focus on global citizenship, equity and innovation). However, inputs from participants falling outside of these areas are also welcome. Insights gained from the virtual conference will form part of the evidence base for the forthcoming UNESCO-UNEVOC trends mapping study on ‘the future of TVET teaching and learning’.
