The need to improve competencies of vocational and professional education and training (VPET) teachers to develop facilitation skills to enhance teaching practices and keep abreast of the up-to-date industry trends for curriculum development is a key sustainable development goal in VPET.  It is directly related to Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4) that highlights the need to improve quality of education at all levels. Given that VPET stresses the constant updating of work competencies to cope with the rapid changing technologies in industries, the concept ‘learn to unlearn’ and ‘unlearn to learn’ seem to be a promising solution for capacity building of VPET personnel.
