Building a Community of Practice: Learner-centred teaching in technical and vocational education and training in Asia-Pacific
UNESCO Bangkok is pleased to announce the release of a new report to counter the impacts of COVID-19 and promote a learner-centred approach to TVET teaching that builds skills for life and work. A learner-centred approach – an ecosystem that empowers learners based on their individual learning profiles – is at the heart of a new report on TVET teaching in Asia-Pacific.
Together with speakers from UNESCO, the International Labour Organization, and leading practitioners from industry, a new report will be released to explore current challenges and ways forward for TVET teaching and employment needs in diverse local contexts.
