The Second UNEVOC TVET Leadership Programme commenced today at the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre, Bonn. Twenty two mid-to-senior level TVET leaders from around the world, including those from UNEVOC Centres, will be trained for two weeks to hone their skills for transformational leadership in TVET.
As the global resolve for transition to green economies gains momentum, it is equally imperative to bring about a shift in skills requirements and embed a greening orientation in TVET institutions that train the professionals for the future. UNESCO-UNEVOC has developed a practical guide for TVET institutions that presents a comprehensive and actionable framework for Greening TVET.
The Promising Practices Database presents initiatives from around the world that help contribute in a meaningful way to improving TVET in their context; be they local, national or regional. Two new promising practices from Ammachi Labs, India and SSACI, South Africa have been added to the Promising Practices Database.
