Teacher Education and Training

Overview

© UNESCO / Roger Dominique
As teachers play a significant role as agents of change for the next generation, professionalization of TVET teachers and trainers as well as of TVET teacher educators is widely regarded as a crucial issue that affects the effectiveness and quality of any TVET system. Although many variables affect the success of education and training programmes, it is the nature of the interaction between teachers and/or trainers and those being taught that has the greatest impact on the outcomes achieved.

The qualification of skilled workers is a key issue for the competitiveness of economies all over the world, and the quality of teacher education is crucial in determining the skills of future workers. Current debates are focused on enhancing the relevance of TVET teacher education in a global economy while respecting regional, economic, social and cultural differences. Together with its partners, UNESCO-UNEVOC works on several of these important issues.
