International Project on Technical and Vocational Education
Projet international pour l’enseignement technique et professionnel

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 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.
