Vocational teaching and learning

Teachers and trainers are at the forefront in ensuring students are equipped with the skills they need for the future. The ETF works with policymakers, practitioners and stakeholders to support effective teaching and learning in our partner countries.

The ETF supports teachers and trainers to innovate and model high quality professional development projects, embrace new technology and build partnerships with universities and industry. Practitioners are collaborating to share best practice and instructive materials through web-based and face-to-face networks facilitated by the ETF.

An international survey of vocational teachers and trainers was undertaken in 2016 in a number of partner countries to capture a wider range of thinking, best practice and concerns. The survey was repeated and extended to new countries in 2018. The ETF also supports the use of digital video to support teacher development.
