A conceptual approach to vocational training in fragile contexts – bridging education and economic development.
Inspired by a scoping mission to Somalia.Stefan Wolf / Nicole Rudner
Wien, Mai 2021
Vocational Education and Training (TVET) can contribute to education and economic development under conditions of state fragility, crisis and conflict. Yet, TVET has to be adapted to these specific circumstances. Developed for the context of Somalia, Stefan Wolf and Nicole Rudner discuss their concept named TVET+ Service Hub. It combines the still separate fields of TVET, economic development and societal well-being in one institution. The project’s future progress will show possibilities of generalising this approach for other contexts of fragility and crisis.
