GLOBAL SURVEY ON STAFF DEVELOPMENT AND TRAINING
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the way we work and learn in unprecedented ways. As a joint initiative between the International Labour Organization (ILO), Global Apprenticeship Network (GAN), the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), European Commission (EC), European Training Foundation (ETF), European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training (CEDEFOP), Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), African Development Bank, Asian Development Bank and the World Bank Group, this survey aims to examine the impact of COVID-19 on training and development of employees, apprentices and interns in public and private enterprises and other organizations. It will complement the other joint survey between the ILO and UNESCO on addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, which targets TVET providers, policy-makers and social partners. The responses to the survey will contribute to the stocktaking of good practices and innovative solutions undertaken by various enterprises and organizations to overcome the challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This survey consists of six sections, in which Sections I, II, V, VI are applicable for all respondents. Sections III and IV are required for enterprises or organizations offering work-based learning programmes, particularly apprenticeships and internships/traineeships. The Inter-agency group on TVET defines work-based learning comprises all forms of learning that take place in a real work environment. It provides individuals with the skills needed to successfully obtain and keep jobs and progress in their professional development. Apprenticeships, internships/traineeships and on-the-job training are the most common types of work-based learning.
