Have you heard of the RAVTE group, associated with United Nations Centre for Vocational Education and Training? Its mission is to “emphasize the importance of TVET (technical and vocational education and training) in general and VTE (vocational and technical education) in particular at regional and national levels.” It assists in the publication of an open source journal, TVET@Asia. Issue 8 contains research from various Asian countries. As Australia struggles with the place of VET in tertiary education, it is interesting to see what other countries in our region have determined to improve the TVET systems and ultimately improve the economic conditions of many countries. I recommend a read.
