This case study, the 3rd volume in the Series of Case Studies of Technical and Vocational Education and Training in Selected Countries, analyses and describes policies and practices that obtain in selected institutions in the Visayas Region of the Philippines to improve the participation of females in male-dominated TVET courses and to enhance the role of women in national development. Often, efforts to put in place appropriate policies and suitable support measures come to grief, or take inordinate long time to effect, for lack of the availability of easy-to-use examples, case studies, and other tools. The present case study contributes to the pool of resources of what works in TVET with reference to increasing the enrolment of female students in formerly male-dominated fields. It shows a mixture of changes that were implemented, ranging from policies, to physical infrastructure, to funding, to support services such as guidance and counselling and to learning environments.
