  • Share the tools of vocational education and promote good practices
  • Get to know the stakeholders in vocational education


With your participation, the portal will develop to provide a place for interaction and the exchange of experiences.

Please do not hesitate to send us your feedback, your ideas and suggestions, and most importantly any information which you consider relevant to appear on the platform (events, current developments, key documents). Send us an e-mail: contact.pefop@poledakar.iiep.unesco.org
