UNESCO-UNEVOC, in partnership with selected UNEVOC Centres, has launched a series of workshops aimed at testing and co-developing the Skills for Innovation Hubs (i-hubs) Project “Innovation Framework”.
In March 2019, the project was officially launched with 10 partners from the UNEVOC Network. These partners agreed to co-develop the current version of the framework in practical institutional settings and document their innovative practices. Within the structure of the project and framework testing, the Guided Self-Assessment (GSA) process is supported and an Innovation Toolbox is utilized for testing and review. The GSA is a structured process through which the project partner and UNESCO-UNEVOC set the project’s context and goals; gather and process the i-hub’s preparedness to innovate; and present the results of the exercise to the internal stakeholders.Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST) hosted the first GSA in Europe. This was followed by workshops at RVTTI, Kenya, the Berufskolleg an der Lindenstrasse (BKAL), Germany and the Seychelles Institute of Technology (SIT), Seychelles. The workshops benefitted from support provided by TKNIKA, MCAST, Shenzhen Polytechnic and the Seychelles Institute of Technology, UNEVOC Centres and project partners, who served as peer reviewers at the testing of the working draft of the framework.
Innovation is a substantial change in the way TVET is delivered and implemented. This has been evident in the processes, outcomes, and practices registered at each institution. The GSA workshops will continue in September and October with four i-hubs: Shenzhen Polytechnic, China; OMNIA, Finland; TKNIKA, Basque Country, Spain and TESDA Women’s Centre, Philippines.
