Developing a Comparative Analysis Tool for Greening TVET Systems

Paeradigms collaborates with the British Council's Going Global Partnerships programme to create a pioneering benchmarking tool aimed at assessing the sustainability levels of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) systems.

In response to global sustainability agendas, such as the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, there's an urgent need for economies to transition to more sustainable models. Such a green shift inevitably impacts labour markets, necessitating changes in existing job roles and the creation of new ones. Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) systems play a crucial role in this green transition. Against this backdrop, Paeradigms was commissioned to develop a comprehensive tool for holistically assessing the sustainability levels within these TVET systems.

Paeradigms' methodology involved: 1) Desk review: A focused desk review helped identify eight critical dimensions crucial for a green TVET system, from policy coherence to quality assurance.

2) Tool development: Formulation of a digital self-assessment tool featuring over 80 questions based on the identified dimensions.

3) Pilot testing: Engagement with stakeholders from Botswana, Morocco, and Tanzania for initial testing of the tool.

4) Feedback analysis: Analyse stakeholder feedback to identify the system's strengths and areas for further development.
