Mobile Learning and Assessment Services

UNESCO-UNEVOC Promising Practice

TVET can be a key driver of economic and social development within a country. In Jamaica, where there are high rates of youth un- and underemployment, there is a growing need for flexible and accessible TVET models.

HEART/NSTA Trust established the Mobile Learning and Assessment Services Programme to address the lack of TVET access for those in vulnerable communities. The infrastructure is set up to work with stakeholders across Jamaica to enhance the quality of skills development and employability of trainees through flexible courses and assessments.

Training and assessment are carried out inside refurbished coaches. The mobile units increase access through flexibility of learning environment and time. Trainees who need to combine work, family time and study can do so without the hindrance of having to travel to the physical institution. This flexibility allowed trainees to continue their studies throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
