Skills for work and life
UNESCO connects education to the fast-evolving world of work through its promotion of skills for work and life. Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) helps youth and adults develop the abilities, knowledge, values and attitudes they need to find decent work and contribute to building a peaceful, healthy, just and sustainable world. Worldwide 267 million young people aged 15-24 are still not in any form of employment, education or training. TVET contributes to the targets of Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4) to 'ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all’ and those of SDG8 for 'decent work and economic growth'.
