Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) is an educational modality aimed at preparing professionals for the labor market. However, its significance extends beyond employment, playing a crucial role in promoting not only equality of opportunities but also equity in Brazilian society.
This article discusses the importance of TVET in ensuring that the constitutionally guaranteed right to education is effective for all citizens. Equality of access to education, although essential, is insufficient to ensure the full development of individuals without leaving anyone behind. Equity, in this context, presupposes that to achieve educational justice, differential treatment must be provided to the disadvantaged, both in access and progress, in order to level the outcomes of learning and personal growth.
The study explores the concepts of equality and equity, with an emphasis on inclusion as a vital element. It also analyzes the laws and regulations that guide TVET in Brazil, including the Federal Constitution and the National Education Plan. It also examines the guidelines of Education Councils and government policies aimed at promoting equity in education.
The methodology employed is based on documentary research and dialogue with recent literature. The study aimed to enrich public discourse by providing evidence of the role of TVET in promoting equity, especially for young Afro-Brazilian individuals and those with disabilities, while offering recommendations for the formulation of public policies in this context.
