UNEVOC International Library of TVET
(http://p19035.typo3server.info/fileadmin/user_upload/pubs/UNEVOCPublications.pdf) Work is a major feature in most people’s lives. Not only does it provide them with the means to meet basic needs, such as food, clothing and shelter, but also the type of work undertaken by individuals and groups has a major impact on their self-identity, social status and standard of living. Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is concerned with the acquisition of knowledge and skills for the world of work to increase opportunities for productive work, sustainable livelihoods, personal empowerment and socio-economic development.
The UNEVOC International Library of Technical and Vocational Education and Training is a series of publications that provide comprehensive information about many cutting-edge aspects of TVET. The Library showcases best practices and innovative approaches to skills development for employability and seeks to create an effective bridge between research, policy and practice. It is an on-going project and publications prepared as part of the Library complement each other. Elements of the Library are:
- UNESCO-UNEVOC International Handbook of Education for the Changing World of Work: Bridging Academic and Vocational Learning;
- Handbook of Technical and Vocational Education and Training Research;
- UNESCO-UNEVOC Book Series ‘Technical and Vocational Education and Training: Issues, Concerns and Prospects’;
- UNEVOC Discussion Paper Series;
- UNESCO-UNEVOC Annotated Bibliographies of Technical and Vocational Education and Training;
- UNESCO-UNEVOC Case Studies of Technical and Vocational Education and Training in Selected Countries.
- TVET Best Practice Clearinghouse
Some of these publications are published by or in cooperation with partners or external publishers, and some others by UNESCO-UNEVOC itself. The audience for our publications includes policy-makers, practitioners, administrators, planners, researchers, teachers, teacher educators and students, as well as colleagues in other fields interested in learning about education for the world of work and TVET in developed and developing countries, countries in transition and countries in post-conflict situations.
