Nigeria. Social Media: A Platform for Effective Instructional Delivery of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Programmes
This study was carried out in Enugu State , Nigeria to determine Social media as a platform for effective instructional delivery of TVET programmes in Public Universities in Enugu State. The result revealed that social media is a useful platform for effective TVET delivery but TVET lecturers utilize social media to a low extent. The researchers recommended among others that TVET lecturers should update their skills in the use of social media and also, TVET institutions should upgrade social media facilities in their various institutions for effective utilization in TVET delivery.

EU. Vocational education and training as a life jacket
Young people not in employment, education or training (NEETs) are absent both from the labour market and the education sector, thus facing a high risk of professional, digital and social exclusion. Source: CEDEFOP - European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training
What if women built the world they want to see?
Only four percent of construction workers are female -- that's totally unacceptable, but it's also a huge opportunity both for women and for the trades, says youth educator and builder Emily Pilloton-Lam. She makes the case for putting power (and power tools) into the hands of young women and gender-expansive youth, dreaming of inclusive construction sites and daring to ask: What if women built the world they want to see?

Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Conceptual Map: A Bibliometric Analysis
The article is divided into two parts. The first deals with keyword frequencies in TVET in refereed publications and, on this basis, in which countries and institutes TVET research is most common. The second part makes a contrast between some of the most common focuses of these research projects and other themes that have attracted less attention. Through these means, the author makes a point that there is still a lot of work to do on the realities and potentialities of TVET and research into it. Source: Journal of Asia Pacific Studies
Partnership for developing TVET
We are looking at the Skills Gap for Infrastructural Development. One huge question is how do we provide human resources for the industry? How can we bridge the skills gap?
The article focus on three main topics:
- firstly, we will frame partnership development in the context of essential requirements for developing an effective TVET system.
- Secondly, we will highlight the partnership of the industry, the educational organizations, and the Government.
- After that, we will give an example of a way of building the partnership. Source: Lucubrate Magazine

Canada. Career Guidance for Adults in Canada
In the context of considerable labour market change, many adults in Canada are being challenged to consider alternative career paths, and to upskill or retrain. Career guidance has the potential to facilitate employment transitions: not only from the education system to the labour market, but also from unemployment to employment, and from declining to growing sectors. This study assesses the career guidance services that are available for adults in Canada, and puts them into an international perspective.

The future of work after COVID-19
The pandemic accelerated existing trends in remote work, e-commerce, and automation, with up to 25 percent more workers than previously estimated potentially needing to switch occupations.
Before COVID-19, the largest disruptions to work involved new technologies and growing trade links. COVID-19 has, for the first time, elevated the importance of the physical dimension of work. In this research, we develop a novel way to quantify the proximity required in more than 800 occupations by grouping them into ten work arenas according to their proximity to coworkers and customers, the number of interpersonal interactions involved, and their on-site and indoor nature.

Pathways to Professions. Understanding Higher Vocational and Professional Tertiary Education Systems
Higher vocational and professional tertiary education includes programmes with very different design features and functions, ranging from two-year programmes in tertiary institutions through professional bachelor degrees to free-standing professional examinations designed to upskill existing practitioners. In some European countries the scale of enrolment in the higher vocational and professional tertiary education sector now rivals that in regular universities. This report compares this sector across OECD countries, drawing on quantitative and qualitative data. Source: OECD - Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development
