Revision of UNESCO Recommendation on Technical and Vocational Education and Training

published 4 December 2014 updated 5 December 2014

The recommendation was originally adopted in 1962 and was revised in 1974 and 2001. The aim of the current revision is to reflect new trends and issues in the field, considering demographic changes, youth unemployment and growing inequality as well as the central role of "skills for work and life" in the process of defining global priorities for education beyond 2015.
