UNEVOC Network Collaborative research: Community engagement in TVET

This study looks at how community engagement is carried out in UNEVOC Centres across the UNEVOC Network’s five regions: Africa, Arab States, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and North America, and Latin America and the Caribbean.

The objectives of the study are to: (i) collect information on how community engagement is addressed in technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutions in different countries and regions; and (ii) address how to adapt a community engagement framework to different situations and TVET systems. The study’s methodology is adapted from the Delphi model, which is a survey-based methodology for obtaining consensus.

This report discusses different forms of community engagement and identifies the most active stakeholders. The report also looks at key factors playing a role in the success or failure of community engagement, and the main assesses the benefits of promoting community engagement.

The report finishes by introducing a community engagement framework for institutions interested in either initiating community engagement initiatives or scaling up ongoing initiatives.
