Regional Experts Meeting on the Future of STEM Education and Training in TVETs in Southeast Asia

To equip the workforce of the future –particularly women- with demand-driven STEM-related skills and ultimately prepare them to gain access to STEM-related occupations, the ILO Women in STEM Program aims to enhance the capacity of national TVET institutions to deliver STEM education and skills development training programs, particularly intervening to ensure co-work skills taught in TVETs are more STEM ready. With more employers across South East Asia demanding STEM-related skills, there is a need to review then strengthen the TVET approach to design and deliver STEM training programs as well as its ability to integrate relevant STEM competencies into training regulations and trainings for future occupations.

    In response to these challenges, the ILO aims to gather a selected group of STEM experts and practitioners in South East Asia to: 1. What are STEM skills and which skills are vital for employability in the workplace of the future; 2. Review good international practices integrating STEM education in TVETs; 3. Assess the demand of STEM-related competencies and skills in South East Asia to bridge the policy gaps against industry needs and requirements; 4. Identify main challenges of TVET institutions when developing STEM-related skills necessary to fulfil the skills requirements of the Industry 4.0; 5. Review the evolving role of instructors as key drivers of change within TVETs including their teaching and assessment beliefs, translation of knowledge into practice, and connection with practitioners in the private sector; 6. Lastly, based on the results of the above mentioned bullet points, develop a strategy framework to prioritize the development of STEM subjects in high-quality TVET education.
