TVET Peer Support in Response to COVID-19
The global COVID-19 outbreak impacts not only our health, lives and economies, but also the labour market and education sector. Many countries have already implemented temporary measures to slow down the spread of the virus, which includes closing public institutions and schools. As of April 8, more than 1.5 billion children and youth were unable to attend schools and universities, with nationwide closures effective in 188 countries.
Consequently, different forms of online learning and collaboration have become the focus of attention in an effort to ensure continuity of learning. In these critical times, we would like to draw your attention to the TVET Forum (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) as a platform for mutual support, knowledge sharing and peer learning, where you can seek advice and discuss your current TVET-related challenges and needs.
While some institutions and members of the TVET community may have already garnered valuable experience with online learning strategies and are set up to offer large-scale online solutions without much delay, others are still in the learning phase and may find it useful to hear about working solutions that can be adapted to local contexts and implemented quickly.
