Project Summary

This project will build on existing research and leverage current activities to establish an APEC Integrated Referencing Framework for Skills Recognition and Mobility, which will draw together into a cohesive architecture the following key elements:

a) Occupational standards referencing framework – enables common understanding of skills required for specific occupations and determination of relevance of skills held by individuals;

b) Qualifications referencing framework – enables mapping against national qualification levels for occupations/qualifications; and

c) Quality assurance referencing framework – enables confidence in the quality of provision of training against occupational standards and the integrity of qualifications issued.

Referencing frameworks enable economies to establish broad confidence in systems that underpin skills development and are the centrepiece of mutual recognition.

This project will determine how these elements can combine to support recognition arrangements in TVET across APEC, explore the feasibility of leveraging off existing qualifications and quality referencing frameworks, and develop a draft referencing framework for regional occupational standards.

All APEC economies will be invited to participate in a two day workshop (30 September – 1 October 2015) in Manila, the Philippines to discuss how the three distinct referencing frameworks could come together to support labour mobility in APEC.
