UNESCO-UNEVOC in Action: Biennial Report 2012-2013
UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training
This biennial report provides a comprehensive overview of UNESCO-UNEVOC's activities in technical and vocational education and training in 2012-2013. It illustrates UNESCO-UNEVOC's contributions to the UNESCO 36 C/5 sectoral priorities and programmatic objectives. Specifically, UNESCO-UNEVOC contributed to the biennial sectoral priority in Education which focused on "scaling up equity, inclusion and quality in education and lifelong learning for sustainable development and a culture of peace and non-violence". UNESCO-UNEVOC contributed to the acceleration of progress towards Education for All (EFA) and education for sustainable development (ESD). The report indicates how the UNESCO-UNEVOC has helped to improve TVET in UNESCO Member States and serves as an information document for those interested in the work of the Centre. We hope that the readers will find the report useful for their work. This biennium was a crucial one for TVET in UNESCO. Highlights included the Third International TVET Congress in Shanghai, China, organized by UNESCO, and a follow-up meeting at UNESCO-UNEVOC in Bonn on the occasion of its 10-year anniversary. The Third TVET Congress was attended by more than 500 practitioners, experts and policy makers and resulted in a set of important recommendations--the Shanghai Consensus--that has guided the work of UNESCO-UNEVOC and its global network in the second half of the biennium. A list of visitors to the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre is appended.
