Year 2015 marks the beginning of ASEAN Economic Community in which TVET needs to readjust itself to the demand of both national and regional levels. Relevant issues such as emerging TVET programmes, readjustment of curriculum contents, quality assurance, labour market information, recognition of qualification across country and region, and sustainability are some that need special attention. 

For this TVET@Asia Issue 8, SEAMEO VOCTECH would like to invite contributors who would write a research paper or reflection paper based on TVET policies and practices that can enlighten our understanding about the issues stated above that eventually will equip the readers with meaningful understanding and readiness to contribute to the development of TVET in the region in response to ASEAN integration.

Suggested paper topics that can be relevant for this issue are the followings:

  • TVET quality improvement initiatives,
  • Regionalization and harmonization of TVET,
  • Curriculum improvement that consider new contents relevant for widening the geographical market demands of TVET,
  • Strengthening the roles of private sectors in TVET, and
  • Integrating sustainability in TVET policy and practices.
