The International Project on Technical and Vocational Education (UNEVOC) is a project of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). 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 vocational education.
· 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 C, one of the UNEVOC activities is to identify studies and documents, to publish them and to disseminate them to educational administrators, teacher educators, curriculum developers and other interested parties. It is in this context that the present study has been make the experiences and findings widely available to all those concerned.
The International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP) was established in Paris by UNESCO in 1963 to serve as a world centre for advanced training and research in educational planning. Its purpose is to help all member states of UNESCO in their social and economic development efforts, by enlarging the fund of knowledge about educational planning and the supply of competent experts in this field.
Legally, and administratively a part of UNESCO, the Institute enjoys intellectual autonomy, and its policies and programme are controlled by its own Governing Board, under special statutes voted by the General Conference of UNESCO.
