Guidelines for the Quality Assurance of TVET Qualifications in the Asia-Pacific Region

Increased migration between Asia-Pacific countries and the rapid pace of regional integration are leading to increasing calls for quality assurance in technical and vocational education and training (TVET) qualifications. The third International Congress on TVET held in Shanghai in 2012, for example, recommended the development of guidelines to assist Member States in this process.

To this end, UNESCO Bangkok with Asia-Pacific Member States to develop Guidelines for the Quality Assurance of TVET Qualifications in the Asia-Pacific region. The guidelines focus on the quality assurance of TVET qualifications based on findings from 13 country studies.  The study was carried out through a participatory process involving consultation with Member States to best respond to their diverse contexts and needs.

The aim of these guidelines is to propose principles and indicators that can assist Member States in optimizing their quality assurance mechanisms for TVET qualifications. They provide a framework for documenting, developing, monitoring, evaluating and improving the currency and comparability of certificates, diplomas or degrees in TVET.

Member States are strongly urged to make efforts to implement the guidelines as appropriate to their specific national contexts.
