UNESCO-UNEVOC in Brief
UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training
Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) refers to a range of learning experiences that are relevant to the world of work and take place in a variety of learning contexts, including in the formal, non-formal and informal sector. A fundamental purpose of TVET is to equip people with capabilities that can broaden their opportunities in life. TVET can play an important role in preparing young people for the world of work and provide them with the skills necessary to find decent (self-) employment. The UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre for TVET has the unique mandate of promoting and supporting countries to implement TVET that is relevant, lifelong and accessible to all. The UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre for Technical and Vocational Education and Training assists UNESCO's Member States to strengthen and upgrade their TVET systems.
