    The discourse on education for rural transformation (ERT) and the exploration of the concept began with a study undertaken by the UNESCO International Research and Training Centre for Rural Education (INRULED) in 2001, entitled Education for Rural Transformation: Towards a Policy Framework. Since this publication there has been growing attention paid to the concept of rural transformation, and the role that general education, technical and vocational education and training (TVET), and skills development play in it. Across the world, rural communities are experiencing fundamental changes, which are both impacting on and being impacted by people. In some communities these changes are about variations in the social fabric, with urbanization and rural industrialization playing significant roles. In other cases, these changes are reflected in depopulation, as people migrate to the cities.
