Join us in the this edition of UNESCO-UNEVOC’s virtual conferences, where we are discussing diversifying sources of funding for TVET. The conference is taking place from 16 to 22 January 2017 on the UNESCO-UNEVOC TVeT Forum.
The bulletin has been redesigned and each edition focuses on a thematic area; issue no. 30 gives an overview of UNESCO-UNEVOC's recent activities with regards to Capacity Development, including a two-week leadership programme organized in Bonn. The bulletin is available as a PDF in English and Spanish and will be available in the other UN languages soon.
Promoting entrepreneurial skills is recognized as one way to help youth access the world of work in the Arab region, where the youth unemployment rate is one of the highest in the world.
