This report summarizes the various contributions from the participants of the moderated e-forum discussion, which took place from 5 to 15 December 2011. It also provides the lessons learnt and future recommendations brought forward by the participants. The report concludes that TVET is generally gender-biased, and that there is an urgent need for structural changes to eliminate barriers for women in TVET. The participating TVET experts provided recommendations for basic structural changes in the training for trainers (advocating more female teachers and trainers), curriculum development, changing teaching methods, improved classroom and workplace atmospheres, and the greater involvement of males in traditional female fields of TVET.
