This year has been a particularly difficult time to be a teacher. In many cases, teachers have been called upon to conduct online lessons without adequate training, resources or support. According to a joint ILO-UNESCO-World Bank Survey on TVET and skills development during the time of COVID-19, nearly a third of all respondents did not use distance learning at all prior to the pandemic, and another third used it only occasionally. Yet through individual and collective action, teachers have managed to create new learning environments for their students. Despite the inherent challenges, the rapid transition to online classes has spurred a capacity for innovation and creativity within the teaching community.
In recognition of these achievements, this year’s World Teachers’ Day will be celebrated with the theme “Teachers: Leading in crisis, reimagining the future”. To mark the occasion, UNESCO and its partners are inviting education stakeholders to participate in a week-long series of interactive virtual events that examine what teacher leadership means in the context of Education 2030.
Amid ongoing reflections on the future of the profession, UNESCO-UNEVOC has published a study on the future of TVET teaching. The study identifies ten trends shaping the knowledge, skills and essential competencies for the delivery of quality TVET. These trends point towards a need for TVET systems to become more future-focused, resilient and responsive to align with current shifts taking place in teaching and training methods.
