Introduction EAS TVET Network

Strengthening Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and developing a regional network of leading TVET institutions

In 2007, East Asia Summit (EAS) leaders agreed to strengthen regional education cooperation. This intention was further informed by a study into harnessing educational cooperation in the EAS for regional competitiveness and community building. This study identified seven priority areas including “Strengthening Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and developing a regional network of leading TVET institutions”.

In January 2008, the Centre for International Economics published a report for the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations on APEC and international education. In this report, five key policy areas were identified:
A) Quality assurance
B) Registration and accreditation
C) Content and delivery
D) Qualifications recognition
E) Data collection

These policy areas were further analyzed for their influences on cross-border exchange and how cooperation at a regional level might meet certain objectives. The establishment of a TVET provider network was one of 13 priority education projects approved at the 2010 EAS Senior Education Officials Taskforce. The TVET provider network ranked as the third most important of the 13 projects. The establishment of a TVET provider network in the East Asia Summit region was endorsed by EAS Education Ministers at their inaugural meeting in Bali in July 2011 as one of the 13 projects under the EAS Education Cooperation Action Plan (2011-2015).

At the 2012 EAS Education Ministers Meeting held in Yogyakarta on 5 July 2012 Australia and the Republic of Korea announced they would fund and implement the TVET provider network project. It was agreed Australia would conduct a first phase, culminating in this Draft Operational Plan. The Republic of Korea would as a second phase convene the first meeting of the Network’s Governing Council to consider and adopt the Operational Plan in the second half of 2013.
