UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre for TVET

UNESCO-UNEVOC is UNESCO's specialized Centre for technical and vocational education and training (TVET). It assists UNESCO Member States in strengthening and upgrading their TVET systems. It links and fosters interaction and learning among diverse institutions of TVET stakeholders around the world. UNESCO’s work in TVET responds to many of the objectives and priorities agreed by its Member States. The work on TVET and sustainable development is a prominent priority of UNESCO-UNEVOC in view of the technological and societal developments and growing concerns about climate change, environmental degradation and scarcity of resources which are changing the nature of work and skills demand. UNESCO-UNEVOC addresses these issues by supporting Member States through capacity development, knowledge mobilization and development and resource development. It acts as a clearinghouse to promote global awareness on TVET. 

Within the UN Global Action Programme on Education for Sustainable Development, UNESCO-UNEVOC promotes the implementation of Greening TVET (GTVET) by advocating for and developing institutional capacities of its global UNEVOC Network, mobilizing evidence-based research and by facilitating knowledge exchange. UNESCO-UNEVOC is part of an Inter-Agency Working Group on Greening TVET and Skills Development and actively takes part in the coordination, expertise sharing and knowledge-exchange within the IAWG.
