On 18 December 2012, UNESCO-UNEVOC organized an expert workshop on the World TVET Database in Bonn, Germany. Representatives of the UNEVOC team, UNEVOC centres in the Netherlands, Germany and Norway and partner agencies Cedefop and UNITAR joined together to discuss, critically evaluate and provide feedback on the future development of the World TVET Database. This online database was launched in May 2012 and is UNESCO-UNEVOC’s endeavour to provide concise, accurate and up-to-date information on technical and vocational education and training systems around the world, in one single place.
Main topics discussed during the workshop were the target group of the database; current and potential obstacles in collecting, structuring, updating and validating TVET-related information; and the relation of the database to other UNEVOC online services.
The workshop was participatory in nature and valuable and constructive feedback was received from the participants, which will help UNESCO-UNEVOC to further improve and upgrade the World TVET Database.
