The UNESCO International Meeting on Innovation and Excellence in TVET Teacher Education took place iin Hangzhou/China in Novemer 2004. The main aim of this conference was to establish a platform for discussion about improving the equality of TVET. The focal point was the development and implementation of an international Master Degree Standard in teacher and trainer education in TVET. One year later, in Decembe 2005 the conference, from which this book derives its content, entitled "Development and Implementation of a Master Degree Standart for Teacher and Trainer Education in TVET in East and South East Asia", took place at the University of Tainjin in China. This conference represents an outcome of the close cooperation between InWent - Capacity Building International of Germany, the Ministry of Education Beijing in China and the UNESCO-UNEVOC from Bonn in Germany, and set a precedent for the further development of Master degree programmes in TVET.
At the conference, various existing Master degree programmes were discussed in the context of the international framework developed in Hangzhou. Thus, the structure and content of Master degree programmes of Asian universities were introduced and discussed with particular regard to the implementation of the international framework together with broader aspects of provision impacting on TVET.
The book begins with key note papers which provide the reader with the background to current developments in TVET. The subsequent three chapters summarise nineteen papers delivered by participants from different countries.
