Assistive technologies for TVET students and employees with disabilities

UNESCO-UNEVOC Promising Practice

Temporary restrictions on movement and physical distancing measures resulting from the pandemic have led to the closure of many TVET institutions and skills development organizations in Trinidad and Tobago. As remote education and training become the norm, there is a high expectation that TVET teachers and instructors will be able to deliver effective and relevant online training programmes.

Providing remote TVET teaching can be challenging for education providers, especially when it comes to ensuring courses are equally accessible to learners with special needs and disabilities. Similarly, providing employees with disabilities with the right tools and technology to do their jobs can be challenging when work is undertaken remotely.

The University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus, School of Education, embarked on a pilot project to train TVET teachers, instructors and Workforce Development (WFD) leaders in the use of online assistive technologies to support TVET students and employees with disabilities.
