UN Women Virtual Skills School brochure

This brochure introduces the reader to UN Women's Virtual Skills School initiative, an innovative approach to skills aqcuisition and education in the 21st Century through an open platform with diverse learning paths. The VSS will help women and girls leapfrog ineffective, low-quality or inaccessible educational and skills development opportunities, including by using technology and innovative learning pedagogies. This will enable young women to acquire critical 21st century life and soft skills, including digital skills.

A particular focus will be on providing second chance education to girls who have not entered or have dropped out of secondary school. Training for teachers and educators on women’s empowerment issues, gender-based social norms and biases will constitute another important element of the Virtual Skills School.
