ILO-UNESCO survey for TVET providers, policy-makers and social partners on addressing the COVID-19 pandemic

3 April 2020,   to   1 May 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting our way of living. It not only poses a threat to the health of millions of people around the world but will also cause major social and economic disruption. The crisis is affecting the way we work and learn in an unprecedented manner. Each of us is feeling its repercussions in different ways. What is urgently needed are responses to address the crisis and its impact.

Within the context of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), training providers and policy-makers are looking for quick, practical and innovative solutions to tackle the issue. It is of utmost importance to define an efficient response in a timely manner, and identify and address the challenges faced by training institutions in order to attempt to counter the negative impact of the crisis, to the extent possible.

The purpose of this survey prepared by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is to gather information on good practices and to allow knowledge sharing, with the aim of helping countries around the world mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in the areas of education and training. The survey targets:
• providers of initial and continuing technical and vocational education and training
• policy makers (such as Ministries of Labour and Education)
• social partners

The information gathered through this survey will contribute to stocktaking and sharing knowledge about experiences and good practices, strategies and tools that can help other TVET learners and trainers, policy-makers, social partners and other stakeholders mitigate impact, manage the learning and training process effectively and increase resilience during the difficult period presented by the pandemic.
