What works in TVET: Best Practices and Case Studies
Under the overall theme of What Works in TVET, UNESCO-UNEVOC maintains the TVET Best Practice Clearinghouse (TVET-BPC), and the Series of Case Studies in TVET in Selected Countries. Documents in this scheme are written by technical and vocational education and training specialists from the worldwide UNEVOC Network. While the aim of the TVET Best Practice Clearinghouse is to harness, document and evaluate a good practice that is in place in your country, to share expertise and knowledge on What Works in TVET with the global TVET community, and to provide TVET practitioners in other countries and contexts with information on how this best practice can be reproduced, the Case Studies in TVET should have a stronger research background and examine particular TVET theme that is of relevance in your country and that will be of interest to TVET specialists around the world.
As a UNEVOC Network member, we would like to encourage you to submit your Best Practice or a Case Study on a theme of your choice by completing the proposal form below. This will give you a unique opportunity to contribute to knowledge generation, preservation and sharing among the Network. Submitted proposals will be reviewed and the selected authors will receive a modest research grant to support the work within a given time frame.
