UNEVOC Centre Afghanistan continues efforts to establish national research centre for TVET

Building on earlier discussions on the establishment of a National Centre for Educational and Vocational Research in Kabul, the UNESCO Office in Afghanistan organized a workshop to further elaborate the mandate, management structure and financing of this centre on 11 and 12 August 2014 in Kabul, Afghanistan.

The establishment of the centre aims to build research capacities in TVET in Afghanistan and act as a hub for relevant TVET data, curricula, reports, standards, and resources to support evidence-based planning and policy development in the country.

Mr Shyamal Majumar, Head of UNESCO-UNEVOC, provided input during a special workshop session via teleconference. In particular, he spoke about the work of UNESCO-UNEVOC and the UNEVOC Network and highlighted the opportunities for improving the image of TVET and fostering networking in Afghanistan. His contribution was further complemented by a presentation from Dr. Eon Lim, Director of the Korean Research Institute for Vocational Education and Training (KRIVET), UNEVOC Network Cluster Coordinating Centre for the Asia and Pacific region.

The establishment of the research centre is coordinated by the Deputy Ministry of Technical and Vocational Education and Training, Ministry of Education (DMTVET - MoE), a UNEVOC Centre. It is in line with the framework of the Capacity Development for Education for All programme (CapEFA) that UNESCO has been supporting since 2010 to enhance national capacities and contribute to the quality improvement of the TVET system in Afghanistan.
