Most countries in Asia have identified the strengthening of current skills development systems to reduce skills mismatches and ensure inclusive and more equitable development as a priority. The investment in skills development for improved productivity, employment growth and development should prepare a nation for long term competitiveness and for global and technological changes. From one of the Regional Skills Network’s conventions, many issues and needs for the countries in the Asia and the Pacific region have been identified. The issues that were raised are found to be common between countries, issues such as: skills shortages, the need to effectively manage skills migration, the need for improved partnerships with industry for instance. In addition, there is an increasing pressure on all the countries in this region to compete in a global market which means that the standard of quality of skilled workers must at least be comparable. Many countries in the Asia and the Pacific region find that quality is increasingly important as training organizations compete for funding or for fee-paying students who are themselves seeking high quality training at a reasonable price. Effective public governance and management continue to be the key issues in the Technical/Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector. National TVET systems and institutions vary from country to country and their management practices reflect the conditions in which they operate. However, all governments wish their TVET institutions to operate flexibly and cost-efficiently and to respond quickly to changes in the labour markets. TVET Institutions’ responsiveness to market demand and their ability to operate flexibly and efficiently are strongly determined by the degree of their management, financial and academic autonomy for the benefit of their stakeholders, by also strengthening professional and management competence of their staff. This fellowship aims to strengthen the skills and abilities of managers and administrators in the management and operation of Technical/Vocational Educational and Training institutions
