Measuring Return on Investment in TVET - Virtual Conference - 09 to 16 May 2016

Introduction | Messages | Participants

In this edition of UNESCO-UNEVOC’s virtual conferences, the discussion focuses on Return on Investment (ROI) in technical and vocational education and training (TVET). The conference took place from 9 to 16 May 2016 on the UNESCO-UNEVOC TVeT Forum.

The virtual conference seeks to inform the wider TVET community about a current research project currently undertaken by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) in Australia. Importantly, it is an opportunity for the community to share their ideas, expertise and experiences with the research team to strengthen and validate the initial bases for measuring ROI and identifying indicators.

With this in mind, the virtual conference addressed the following questions:

  • How could information on ROI benefit TVET systems?
  • Which types of ROI are most important or relevant?
  • What are some of the challenges when comparing ROI in TVET across different countries? How do we take into account the differing political, cultural and educational contexts when comparing returns?
  • What data sources are currently available in your country to measure the ROI in TVET? What are the gaps and how can these gaps be addressed?
