Revisiting Global Trends in TVET: Reflections on Theory and Practice
Ananiadou, Katerina, Ed.
UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training
The essays presented in this publication are complementary to the UNESCO forthcoming volume on global TVET trends and issues in UNESCO's new Education on the Move series. They cover a wide, although certainly not exhaustive, range of current practices, ideas and debates in the field of technical and vocational education and training (TVET). They come at a time when the importance and value of TVET is being increasingly recognized in the context of lifelong learning in a globalized world, by UNESCO and other national, regional and global stakeholders in education and international development. The following essays are included in this publication: (1) Reconceptualizing TVET and development: a human capability and social justice approach (Leon Tikly); (2) Vocationalization of secondary and higher education: pathways to the world of work (Rupert Maclean and Margarita Pavlova); (3) The attractiveness of TVET (Christopher Winch); (4) Learning through practice: beyond informal and towards a framework for learning through practice (Stephen Billett); (5) Work-based learning: Why? How? (Richard Sweet); (6) Why improved formal teaching and learning are important in technical and vocational education and training (TVET) (Jeanne Gamble); (7) Career guidance and orientation (A. G. Watts); (8) TVET and entrepreneurship skills (Aboubakr Abdeen Badawi); and (9) Technical and vocational education and training, and skills development for rural transformation (Darol Cavanagh, Greg Shaw and Li Wang). (An index is included. Individual papers contain references.)
