East Asia Summit TVET Provider Network Workshop

The EAS TVET Provider Network was initiated in November 2012. A total of eighteen countries make up the network. See list below

In November 2012, an inagural three day workshop was held in Melbourne. Thirty representatives from 15 of the 18 countries workshopped the goals and structure of the proposed network and were joined by representatives from SEAMEO VOCTECH, the Australian government (DIISRTE, AusAID, Austrade, Trade Recognition Australia), peak bodies (ACPET, IEAA) and TDA’s corporate sponsors, Ellucian and ETS TOEFL. A video message from UNESCO UNEVOC was also shown during the workshop.

Presentation on each country's technical vocational education and training systems (TVET) can be now accessed on this page as well as the most recent version of the network's operational plans. These plans will be formally reviewed and formally endorsed at a TVET Network Conference in Seoul in October 2013. 

The establishment of this network is being led by TAFE Directors Australia, on behalf of the Australian government, and the Korean Research Institute for Vocational Education and Training, on behalf of the Republic of Korea.
