Enhancing Relevance in TVET: Review of Progress in the Asia-Pacific since 2012

This Review assesses the progress made by countries in the Asia-Pacific in developing their TVET systems since the Third International Congress on TVET (Shanghai, 2012). It focuses on relevance of TVET, the first recommendation of the Shanghai Consensus, and is based on a survey conducted among ministries, employers and youth organisations in the Asia-Pacific region.  The survey asked questions related to five key aspects of TVET relevance - (1) responsiveness to skill needs, (2) ‘greening’ TVET, (3) responsiveness to technological changes, (4) adapting qualifications and (5) partnerships/cooperation - and focused on how countries are integrating these elements into national TVET development. The Review provides findings and offers recommendations which give an insight into recent developments in TVET in the region.
