The Shanghai update is a joint newsletter by UNESCO’s Youth, Literacy and Skills Development section and UNESCO-UNEVOC. It reports on follow-up activities to UNESCO's Third International Congress on TVET in 2012.
The Biennial Report "UNESCO-UNEVOC in Action" provides a comprehensive overview of UNESCO-UNEVOC's activities in TVET.
The Biennial Report presents a selection of UNESCO-UNEVOC’s activities during 2014 and 2015. The activities contributed to UNESCO’s sectoral priorities and programmatic objectives and assisted Member States to provide equitable, inclusive and quality education and promote lifelong learning for sustainable development. Importantly, the selected activities also illustrate some of the wider transformations that have occurred in the education sector, in part due to the development and adoption of the post-2015 development agenda.
In 2014 and 2015 UNESCO-UNEVOC empowered the UNEVOC Network and engaged its members to co-develop the International Centre’s work and activities and build up capacities within the network, with a specific focus on UNESCO-UNEVOC’s thematic priorities: Greening TVET, ICT in TVET, and Youth and Skills. Capacity-development programmes started in 2015 promise to deliver outcomes that will enable UNEVOC Centres to contribute to the development of TVET on a national level, and to become regional and international leaders. A particular highlight was the organization of the Global Forum on ‘Skills for Work and Life Post-2015’ held in Bonn, Germany, from 14 to 16 October 2014. Over 200 delegates from seventy-one UNESCO Member States, including eighty participants from sixty-two UNEVOC Centres, participated in discussions which helped inform and stimulate the global debate on TVET in the post-2015 development agenda.
