Project Summary

This project builds on the APEC Integrated Referencing Framework for Skills Recognition and Mobility (IRF) – Establishment Phase – Phase I [Project No. HRD 05 2015S] to develop a comprehensive skills recognition referencing mechanism for TVET. The APEC IRF is a concept that will enable comparisons of the skills held by workers across the region by bringing together the components necessary for understanding and assessing these skills, including:

-  the relevance of skills held by workers;

-  the level at which the skills are held; and

-  the quality of training/skills development inputs/outputs.

This project, known as IRF Phase II, will progress activities to address recommendations from the IRF Phase I project Final Report.  It will involve consulting with Working Group participants from the ten economies involved in the two APEC occupational standards development projects in the transport & logistics and tourism industry sectors. The consultation will consider practical issues experienced by industry when recognising the skills of workers and ascertain how the IRF concept can contribute to improving skills recognition.

The outcomes from the IRF Phase II – Socialisation & Consultation project will be: the design of skills recognition pilots in the transport and logistics and tourism sectors using the APEC regional occupational standards developed for these sectors; a concept proposal to inform the qualification and skills recognition component of the APEC Labour Mobility Framework; and it is anticipated that the outcomes from this project will also be presented to HRD Ministers at their meeting in 2018 for their consideration.
