Around the world, teachers and in-company trainers are the foundation of vocational education and training (VET)systems, playing a key role in supporting the school-to-work transitions for learners from all backgrounds. VET teachers develop learners’ skills in school-based settings, while in-company trainers support learners during their time in work-based learning.
But how can we ensure that these teachers and trainers have the right set of skills and are fully prepared for their role? What can countries do to make requirements and training flexible to attract good candidates?
Join our webinar to learn new insights on the preparation of vocational teachers and trainers in different countries and contexts, taken from the latest OECD analysis. We will hear from country experts on how systems are balancing requirements and flexibility to attract and sustain VET teachers with the right sets of skills for the role they will play in their profession and in society.
