POINT

The focus of the seventh booklet of the Asia-Pacific Education System Review Series is on making TVET accessible to more young people in the Asia and the Pacific. Sustainable economic development in the region depends heavily on addressing skills mismatches resulting from a weak link between school outcomes and the labour market. Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) can play an important role in addressing these mismatches. Therefore, there is urgent need to improve the quality and relevance of TVET, as well as expand its provision to allow greater numbers of youth to profit from its benefits.

 

Undeniably, the road to comprehensive TVET provision is filled with obstacles. One way of expanding it beyond traditional vocational and technical schools is by introducing TVET into the general secondary stream. This booklet gives an overview of vocationalisation as a concept and introduces ways of integrating TVET at secondary level. Given the diversity of the region, there is a range of ways in which vocationalisation is taking place in practice. Drawing on pertinent examples, the booklet paints a picture of vocationalisation strategies within the region and, by discussing them critically, provides valuable policy advice.

 

The main purpose of this booklet is to be a useful resource document for policymakers and practitioners, enabling them to make informed decisions on policies which could allow their countries to benefit from TVET at secondary level, and thereby permit young people to develop their full potential and lead productive and fulfilled lives.
