Fellowship Training Programme to Upgrade Skills of Vocational Training Teachers at HRD Korea

Governments and social partners’ skills experts from the ILO member States in this region commonly acknowledges the role of skills development to meet challenges and agreed that Regional Skills Network (RSN) remains to be a common platform for improving the capacity of member States on skills issues by improving cooperation between partners and improve the knowledge base. This fellowship is one such joint activities with the Human Resources Development Service of Korea (HRD Korea) that will help build the capacities of our member States in relation to TVET which will help with the realization of one of the ILO's strategic objectives under the regional priorities and outcomes of 2010-11 and contribute to the DWCP outcomes that relate to skills and employability.

Background:

 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 sustainable recovery from an economic slow-down similar to the one caused by the 2009 global financial crisis.

 This fellowship is one of the activities that will help with the realization of one of the ILO’s strategic objectives listed under the regional priorities and outcomes of 2010-11, which is the ‘creation of greater opportunities for women and men to secure decent employment and income’.  Governments and social partners’ skills experts from the ILO member States in this region commonly acknowledges the role of skills development to meet challenges and agreed that Regional Skills Network remains to be a common platform for improving the capacity of member States on skills issues by improving cooperation between partners and improve the knowledge base.

 In order to foster more ownership within the Regional Skills Network from its members, it is planned that the next Skills Network meeting explicitly include the future of the Regional Skills Network and the role of member States and social partners in running it, besides the technical discussion on skills trends and anticipation. It is planned that during this meeting, the modalities and engagement and structure will be decided and how the COP (ILO online “Community of Practice” which encourages online discussion forums on relevant Skills topics by experts and implementing units) for Skills and Employability will play a role for knowledge sharing and utilisation as a part of the capacity building process. In line with the ASEAN Leaders’ Statement on human resources and skills development in fostering closer cooperation among ASEAN member States in education, skills development and life-long learning for the empowerment of the peoples of ASEAN and for strengthening of the ASEAN Community, the ILO will collaborate with the ASEAN Secretariat in organizing this event with the participation of ASEAN member countries.  The outcomes of the trainings, it is envisaged, will be assessed to lead towards a consistent approach on capacity building to selected national development. On the technical side, it is planned to organise fellowship programmes to Korea on upgrading the skills of training of instructors and the management of training institutions. 

 The Skills Network has over the years repeatedly focused on thematic areas such as skills mismatch and current systems and delivery mechanism of skills, workplace learning and skills recognition. Research has been conducted in the area of standard development (i.e. RMCS), workplace learning guidelines, and comparative analysis of quality assurance systems within the region. Recent workshops clearly indicated the need to get a better understanding within the network about various countries’ experiences in implementation, which can be shared in thematic regional workshops. Knowledge sharing is critical for a vibrant network, as cross learning will be optimised with well-researched supportive studies, training materials, best practices and guidelines. Consequently, a general assessment study is suggested which should address: a) the role of workplace learning in skills development and b) current skills systems and delivery mechanisms.  The outcome and impact of this study will be evaluated which should lead to more researches and comparative benchmark studies at the national levels in the next funding phase.

 

Objectives:

  • 1) To enable vocational training teachers from developing countries to produce learning contents on their own by studying how to develop and apply teaching materials based on E-learning and U-learning system as a new paradigm of educations.

  • 2) To provide vocational training teachers with a good understanding of the basic theories for designing smart learning contents and implementing practical application of it.

  •   3)To provide vocational teachers new and better ways and methods of experiential learning for their students.
 
  •  4) To develop a training and action plan at the end of the training.
