Global developments including the transition to greener economies, the application of digital technologies in the world of work, and the pandemic, amongst others, are changing the way we live and work. These developments are driving technical and vocational education and training (TVET) systems to improve their capacity to identify the future skills demands and to expand access to skills development opportunities. As TVET adapts itself to the impacts of significant social, environmental, and economic disruptions, innovative practices emerge with the potential to rejuvenate the future of skills development. Schools, training centres and colleges have the potential to play leading roles to drive innovation in their local skills and innovation ecosystem. The development of the UNEVOC Innovation Framework reflects an increased need for guidance and tools that can be used by institutions. Inspired by tools developed by UNESCO-UNEVOC and others, the UNEVOC Innovation Framework should be used according to institutional context.
