Digitalization has led to extensive changes in the skills required for work and life. For technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutions to remain relevant and attractive, they need to identify and introduce digital skills and competencies for the changing world of work and better utilize the opportunities provided by digitalization, particularly distance learning. Their success in harnessing the benefits and tackling the challenges of digitalization depends largely on the digital capabilities of TVET teachers and trainers.
This report presents the results of the UNESCO-UNEVOC trends mapping study on progress and challenges in TVET teacher and trainer digital skills development before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study’s findings – in terms of data, policy trends and identification of good practice examples – offer guidance to governments and TVET institutions that wish to improve teachers’/trainers’ acquisition of digital skills, as well as their capacities and propensities to apply digital tools, services and technologies to deliver quality, learner-centred education and training. The study will also inform UNESCO-UNEVOC’s work in support of TVET teachers and trainers.
