One year into the COVID-19 pandemic, strategies to improve distance learning and build digital capacities continue to be a key focus in the education sector. The surge in the demand for digital skills has reinforced the importance of providing relevant training and support for teachers and students throughout the learning process.
In addition to moving digitalization to the top of the agenda, the pandemic has exposed a growing digital divide and persistent inequalities. Nearly one-third of the world’s students – 463 million children globally – were unable to access remote learning, mainly due to a lack of online learning policies or equipment. Labour markets have also felt the harsh effects of the unprecedented disruption, with the highest employment losses recorded in the Americas. As is too often the case, the vulnerable and disadvantaged have been the most severely impacted.
To help alleviate the short, medium and long-term effects of the global crisis, UNESCO-UNEVOC has launched a COVID-19 response project. The project supports TVET institutions in providing targeted skills training to meet urgent demand, upskilling to build the digital capacities of staff and peer learning to share lessons learned throughout the pandemic. These programmes are all geared towards strengthening the responsiveness, agility and resilience of TVET institutions for the post-COVID-19 era. Find out more about the project and our activities to promote digitalization in TVET in this issue of the UNEVOC Quarterly.
