Technical Vocational Teacher Education and Training (TVET) has received increased attention in international and national policy in recent years as a means to sustainable development. This in turn, demands changes in the curriculum tasks of teachers who teach TVET subjects. The purpose of this paper is to identify some demands of sustainable developments on these teachersâ€™ curriculum tasks. The paper presents the concept of sustainable development and the aims of TVET. It further describes teachersâ€™ curriculum task performance, the elements involved and the demands of sustainable development on the teachersâ€™ curriculum task performance. The paper then discusses some ways of meeting these demands through the teachersâ€™ use of technology in communication and teaching; interpersonal communication among teachers; fostering positive classroom interactions; leadership support from principals and teachersâ€™ engagement in multiple curriculum tasks.
