BILT – Bridging Innovation and Learning in TVET

BIBB and the International Center for Vocational Education and Training UNESCO-UNEVOC jointly coordinate the BILT project: Bridging Innovation and Learning in TVET. The initiative is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research BMBF.

The BILT project provides TVET stakeholders with a platform for exchange and supports them to address current challenges in TVET systems, which arise due to technological, social, environmental, and workplace changes.

Through regular knowledge exchange, thematic project activities, and expert working groups, BILT offers opportunities for collaboration between UNEVOC Centres and TVET stakeholders in Europe, and a platform for bridging of innovation and learning between European UNEVOC Centers and TVET stakeholders in the Asia-Pacific and Africa regions. The results of ongoing activities are accessible on the BILT project web page and the BIBB website (German).
