Expanding TVET at the Secondary Education Level
Asia-Pacific Education System Review Series No. 7
This booklet focuses on vocationalisation of secondary education as an alternative way of expanding access to TVET for young people in Asia-Pacific. It introduces vocationalisation as a concept and discusses it in light of ongoing developments in TVET. It considers different purposes of vocationalisation and presents the debate of its suitability in different contexts. Finally, it discusses vocationalisation on the basis of five regional cases (Thailand, Uzbekistan, China Malaysia, republic of Korea) and gives recommendations for policy makers in the region.
This booklet is the result of UNESCO Bangkok’s project in cooperation with UNESCO-UNEVOC Bonn.
The Asia-Pacific Education System Review Series has been developed aiming to summarize what is known, based on research, about selected contemporary policy issues relating to the national education systems of countries in the Asia and Pacific region.
