NORRAG News 48 on “2012: The Year of Global reports on TVET, Skills & Jobs – Consensus or Diversity?” NOW ONLINE

photo_reportsThis issue of NORRAG News looks at the many different meanings of skill in these reports: high, medium, low, foundation, transferable, technical and vocational skills, as well as life-skills. It looks also at the state of skills in both urban and rural areas, and considers skills-for-poverty-reduction as well as skills-for-growth. The reports cover skills in the informal economy, as well as work-based skills and on-the-job training. Some of the reports also consider the emerging meanings and frontiers of TVET.

Here are a few examples of the more than 40 articles to be found in NN48 (the complete issue can be downloaded here):
