Introduction | Messages | Participants | Sign Up

During this UNESCO-UNEVOC virtual conference, we discussed diversifying sources of funding for TVET. The conference took place from 16 to 22 January 2017 on the UNESCO-UNEVOC TVeT Forum.

Given the importance of finance in TVET today, and trends in diversifying the sources of funding for TVET, this virtual conference addressed the following questions:

What are the main advantages and risks of output-based funding strategies? How should output-based systems be designed to function appropriately?

How can training providers be supported in developing income generating activities? What are the advantages and risks involved? Should these activities be regulated, and if yes, how?

How can the tax / levy imposed on companies be managed and used efficiently? More generally, what are the possible approaches to support lifelong learning strategies?

Besides the implementation of training levies, are there other convincing approaches to mobilize funding for skills development?
