Welcome!

Skill development programs have been greatly affected by the COVID-19 crisis. The challenges faced by formal TVET (Technical & Vocational Education & Training) and short-term skills training for out-of-school youth and current workers are unprecedented. The application of solutions such as learning from home differs substantially across countries & population groups, depending on access to electricity, internet connectivity, devices or media, learning platforms, and the preparedness of instructors & learners for remote education. Compared to other parts of the education system, the focus on practical skills and work readiness creates particular challenges for remote learning, since it generally is a weak substitute for practical activities and learning-by-doing, which constitutes a substantial part of TVET and other skill training programs. Still, plenty of opportunities exist especially for programs with a strong emphasis on academic subjects and which have practical activities that are already computer-based. Skill development programs can help mitigate the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, either in the immediate coping phase or when economies start to recover.

Hear perspectives from a select panel of leaders & industry experts on skill development initiatives in the new reality.
