  • Those who deliver TVET training are described as ‘dual professionals’ with both up to date technical knowledge and the ability to apply effective pedagogical theory.
  • TVET sector trainers are expected to hold substantial qualifications and/or experience in their particular area and have or be willing to gain a teaching qualification.
  • TVET providers look to recruit industry experts, whilst keeping their current trainers’ skills up to date, this means that the continuous professional development (CPD) of instructors is extremely important.
