A Come-Back to the Development Agenda?
A 60 minutes meeting on “Vocational Education and Training: A Come-back to the Development Agenda?” took place on 14 October 2008 at UNESCO Headquarters. Organised by UNESCO-UNEVOC, the meeting focused on the role of TVET in providing knowledge and skills that support economic development and enable people to improve the quality of their daily lives. The work of the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre was also introduced. Roughly 70 UNESCO staff members and delegates to the UNESCO Executive Board attended the meeting.
