These changes represent a great challenge to technical and vocational education and training (TVET) systems, driving them to improve their capacity to adapt to the future demand of skills.
Current developments suggest that many types of innovative practices have already been deployed in TVET systems all over the world. However, despite international recognition of the important role that innovative practices can play to transform TVET, literature on the topic of innovation in TVET remains limited.
In order to provide a better understanding of this topic, this virtual conference will explore the meaning of innovation in the TVET sector and its implications. It offers the opportunity for TVET stakeholders to share experiences, discuss the different roles of TVET in systems of innovation, the use of innovative approaches to improve the quality of TVET, as well as identifying the main barriers for innovation in TVET.
