Project Summary

Background: Education has many benefits and has positive impact in our life. An educated person is an asset for any economy. In today’s world, human capital is considered the best national resource. It is crucial to ensure that skills taught at school are relevant for the working world. Skills mismatches occur when workers have either fewer or more skills than jobs require. Preparing young people to successfully enter the labour market requires cooperation between public and private sectors.

In developing economies, there is a big need to absorb skilful workforce with good experiences. This is because skills are essential for poverty reduction, economic improvement and sustainable development. As a consequence, attention to technical and vocational education and training (TVET) is increasing worldwide.

However, there are challenges in developing TVET especially in an economy where formal education is having more ‘prestigious’ place. One of the challenges currently facing TVET is a lack of sufficient correlation between the practical training and skills taught in TVET institutions and the demands of the labour market. This is underpinned by an uneven balance between lecturers with academic and practitioner background in TVET institutions. In addition to that, government support in mainstreaming TVET need to be materialized into more concrete policy and programs.

APEC as a reputable economic forum in Asia-Pacific that has main goal to support sustainable economic growth and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region, has paid high attention on the importance of TVET. It can be shown in the Joint Statement of the 6th APEC Education Ministerial Meeting in Lima Peru that highlighted “the importance of providing all learners with quality education and training, enabling them to engage in the globalized economy”. Moreover, APEC Framework on Human Resources Development in the Digital Age which was held in Ha Noi, Viet Nam, 2017 underlined the discussion to draw from the experiences of APEC member Economies on how to improve implementation of TVET systems including quality assurance system that are better aligned to the needs of the labour market toward inclusive society. In addition to that, this workshop is aligned to the APEC Policy Partnership on Science, Technology and Innovation (PPSTI) Strategic Plan (2016-2025) under Subgroup A “Building Science Capacity - Enhanced STI education with an increase of the degree attainment, researches, and academic publications and technology outputs”. 

Objectives: The objectives of the workshop include:

a) to discuss the current situation of the technical and vocational higher education and training in APEC Member Economies, as well as challenges and problems faced by TVET institutions;

b) to improve link and match between curricula in vocational higher education and skills & competencies needed in labor market;

c) to increase quality and enhance innovation capacity of vocational higher education systems in the APEC Economies, as well as facilitating the transfer of innovative practices among the Economies; and

d) to promote policy recommendation for the better link and match between TVET and labor market. 

Date and Venue: Makassar City,  South Sulawesi Province, 23-24 August 2017 

Targeted Participants: The workshop is expected to be attended by representatives from government officials from related Ministries, universities, polytechnics, practitioners, private sectors and NGOs. Total participant is projected about 60 people.
