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.
This booklet is the result of UNESCO Bangkok’s project in cooperation with UNESCO-UNEVOC Bonn to document various approaches in providing TVET in secondary schools and to support evidence-based decision making in the expansion of skills development at the secondary education level in the Asia-Pacific region. The synthesis report was prepared by Young Sup Choi, Senior Research Fellow at the Korea Research Institute for Vocational Education and Training (KRIVET).
