Agricultural TVET in developing economies: Challenges and possibilities

Discussion paper

In recent decades, countries across the Global South have set themselves the agenda of expanding their capacity for technical and vocational education and training (TVET). Yet, while the need to provide high quality TVET programmes for the industrial and service sectors is widely accepted, questions are being asked of where agriculture fits within the TVET reform agenda, or even if it has a place within the agenda at all.

This discussion paper aims to highlight the reasons why in developing and emerging economies, TVET in agriculture differs to TVET in other sectors, and explores seven key challenges faced in implementing effective agricultural TVET programmes. It identifies cases of innovative responses to these seven challenges and offers a series of recommendations for countries in the Global South who are reforming their agricultural TVET programmes or introducing new programmes.

This discussion paper was developed in cooperation with seven UNEVOC Centres around the world.
