Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) is a pivotal channel for the development of entrepreneurial learning, where student-centred experiential learning can be a powerful setting for building entrepreneurial capacity.
In order to support the development of entrepreneurship in TVET, fostering youth employment and entrepreneurship is one of UNESCO-UNEVOC’s thematic priorities under the UNESCO TVET Strategy (2016-2021). Through its services, platforms and international network of TVET actors, UNESCO-UNEVOC aims to further the dialogue on entrepreneurship in TVET and provide resources and promising practices of how TVET systems can mainstream entrepreneurial learning.
This virtual conference will explore selected areas of the ecosystem influencing the development of entrepreneurial skills by TVET learners, including the key areas of policy, teacher training, curriculum, non-traditional learning modes and career pathways. These areas interact, while being underpinned by the importance of stakeholder engagement and partnerships to support this work.
