Project Description

As an important element of the education and training system, TVET allows the transformation and improvement of human capital to match industry needs and requirements. With the growing skills mismatch in the labor market brought about by the 4th industrial revolution, the ASEAN-ROK Mobility Programme intends to provide ASEAN Member States with the platforms needed to prepare for the challenges in the labor market and to meet the current and future demands.

The ASEAN-ROK TVET Mobility Programme aims to strengthen selected TVET sectors and programmes in ASEAN through harmonisation, enhancement and development of: (1) quality assurance; (2) qualification standards; (3) capacity building of TVET personnel; and (4) intra-ASEAN student mobility through internships and faculty exchange. The Programme is envisaged to contribute to reducing the gaps between the demand and supply of vocational skills and improved human capital to remain competitive. In doing so, the Programme would also contribute towards improvement of TVET image and increase awareness on TVET prospective contribution to employment, education and business productivity. The Programme contributes towards the achievement of ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community and ASEAN Economic Community Blueprints 2025, the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity 2025, and the ASEAN Work Plan on Education 2016-2020.
