The opening of the UNEVOC Centre in the Republic of Tatarstan at the University of Management “TISBI” was declared at the UNESCO International Conference entitled “Improving the Mechanisms of Cooperation between UNESCO ASPnet, UNITWIN/UNESCO Chairs and UNEVOC Centres for Sustainable Development”. A letter confirming the UNEVOC Network membership was received on September 12, 2013, signed by the head of the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Office, Shamal Mazhumdar.

Joining the UNEVOC network gives the University an opportunity to disseminate and promote the best practices and knowledge received through successful cooperation with UNESCO within the main projects. The interaction occurs at three levels of educational system: primary and secondary (UNESCO Associated Schools Network), secondary vocational (UNESCO-UNEVOC Centres for Vocational Education) and higher education (UNESCO Chairs). The new structure also humanizes the secondary vocational education programs in the Republic of Tatarstan in accordance with the priorities and mission of UNESCO.

For the record:

The UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre acts as a key component of UNESCO’s international programme on technical and vocational education and training. It also works to support UNESCO’s mandate for Education for All and Education for Sustainable Development.

The International Centre achieves this through taking action to strengthen and upgrade the worldwide UNEVOC Network (Flagship Programme), with particular reference to:

  • Stimulating international and regional cooperation concerning human resource development
  • Promoting UNESCO normative instruments and standards
  • Promoting good and innovative practices in TVET
  • Knowledge sharing
  • Mobilizing expertise and resources
  • Strengthening partnerships with other relevant agencies

The UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre is one of eight UNESCO institutes and centres in the field of education. UNESCO is the United Nations’ specialized agency for education, science, and culture.
