Partnership for ODFL in the Pacific Report on Initial Consultation Process (February – March 2021): Online TVET Toolkit
New Zealand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade has funded the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) to implement a project to contribute to enhanced capacity and efficiency of Pacific education sectors through greater use of innovative delivery mechanisms and technology. The first workstream within the second area of activity is professional development of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) providers/educators through an online toolkit. COL wanted to ensure that the toolkit focused on priority needs for the Pacific, and engage potential users early in the workstream. In early 2021, COL worked with COL Focal Points to identify representatives from six TVET stakeholder groups, facilitated virtual workshops for each stakeholder group, and surveyed stakeholders. This report outlines the feedback from this consultation phase.
