The Digitisation of TVET and Skills Systems

The affordances of digital technologies are such that when deployed in a context of stakeholders with a propensity for change, they will facilitate new opportunities and also create challenges for the technical and vocational education and training (TVET) sector.
This report provides a global, high-level snapshot of the digitalization of TVET and skills systems in a set of countries and international organizations. The primary data are derived from a set of semi-structured interviews with experts and practitioners in the TVET and education sectors, as well as a desktop literature review. The data provide insights into TVET and skills systems in Brazil, Ghana, India, Kenya, Malaysia, Malta, Mauritius, New Zealand, Slovenia, Turkey and the United States. They also include the views of the labour market and representatives from global organizations such as the Commonwealth of Learning (COL), the International Labour Organization (ILO), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
