UNESTO TVET strategy 2016-2021: Report of the UNESCO-UNEVOC virtual conference
The new UNESCO strategy for technical and vocational education and training (TVET) for the period 2016-2021 comes at a timely moment. Much has changed since the current strategy was unfurled in 2009. The adoption of the UNESCO Education Strategy for the period 2014-2021 and the recent adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Education 2030 agenda have occurred in a context of globalization and rapid technological development, characterized by changes in economic, labour market and skills patterns. Moreover, the nature of work-occupations, workplaces and goods and services produced is changing, as are government policies and wider geo-political landscapes.
