For the next UNESCO-UNEVOC virtual conference, we are discussing diversifying sources of funding for TVET. The conference is taking place from 16 to 22 January 2017 on the UNESCO-UNEVOC TVeT Forum.
Switzerland’s dual-track Vocational Education and Training system is one of our country’s great strengths. The initial and continuing training of young people is the foundation that enables our economy and society to have an adequate number of skilled workers and managers. The private and public sector share responsibility for the vocational education and training sector and work together as partners.
Over 140 TVET stakeholders from over 35 counties met in Bonn, Germany, to discuss the role of youth skills development in transitions to sustainable economies and societies. In line with UNESCO’s new Strategy for TVET (2016-21), the meeting provided an opportunity for the global TVET community to gather and explore areas for future collaboration.
In this ongoing of UNESCO-UNEVOC’s virtual conferences, we are discussing youth entrepreneurship in technical and vocational education and training (TVET). The conference is taking place from 18 to 29 July 2016 on the UNESCO-UNEVOC TVeT Forum.
