Recently the government of the Republic of Korea (RoK) has tried to transform TVET, from job-specific skill education and training for specific groups, such as vocational school students, to a broader form of vocational competency educationapplicable for all young adults in the country. While a systematic approach to transferable skills (TS) has not yet been fully developed in RoK, there have been a number of attempts at TS education from a variety of diverse perspectives.The Vocational Basic Competence (VBC) in the Korean National Competence Standards (KNCS), Korean Collegiate Essential Skills Assessment (K-CESA), and Career Development Competency (CDC) education are the most prominent examples of TS education programs which have been undertaken in RoK.
