The International Project on Technical and Vocational
Education (UNEVOC) is a project of the United Nations Educational,

Its purpose is to contribute to the development and improvement
of technical and vocational education in Member States.
UNEVOC works in three programme areas:
· Programme Area
A deals with the international exchange of experience and the promotion of
studies on policy issues. It is devoted to system development in technical and
· Programme Area B is
devoted to strengthening national research and development capabilities, that is
to the development of infrastructures.
· Programme Area C
concerns access to data bases and documentation, and strengthening of the UNEVOC
network, in other words, with information and communication.
Under Programme Area A, one of the UNEVOC activities is to
identify, analyse and disseminate information about successful practices of
management and financing of technical and vocational education institutions
through the concept of school enterprises, where vocational learning and
production are being combined. This study presents the findings.
