CVET: A universally accepted definition of work-based CVET does not exist. CVET is defined as “education or training after initial education or entry into working life, aimed at helping individuals to improve or update their knowledge and/or skills; acquire new skills for a career move or retraining; continue their personal or professional development (Cedefop and Tissot, 2004, p.50.). CVET is essentially the part of adult learning oriented towards professional development. IVET: The general definition of IVET is preparation of people with skills and/or competences to gain entry into a specific occupation/sector. At least this is the definition provided in most instances, but IVET is an evolving concept in all countries and, in many respects, this limited definition is becoming outdated. IVET is no longer considered only as a vocational pathway, but as an alternative pathway to the academic route that contains many elements of an academic education, which can, ultimately, lead to a tertiary level or university education. This, at least, is an aspiration for IVET.
