ASEAN Swiss TVET Initiative: Phase 1
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Switzerland will support Cambodia and Laos in strengthening their Technical and Vocational Training Systems with focus on workplace based learning in companies. Myanmar will be included only if the political situation evolves positively and after Swiss political decision. Based on Swiss expertise, unemployed youth and low-skilled workers will acquire labour market relevant skills and improve their employability. The ASEAN-Swiss TVET Initiative will strengthen coordination and exchange on workplace based learning in the region.

Numéro de projet
|Contexte||Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar (CLM) are lagging behind the other ASEAN member states when it comes to human resource development. A majority of youth population living in rural areas outside major cities and other industrialising parts of their country in Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar enter the labour market with limited education and no formal qualification. They are the source of recruitment for companies, especially for lower skills level and/or low-income jobs with limited opportunities to access skills trainings. While some workplace based learning (WBL) practices exist in some companies and while in all three countries legal frameworks and policies indicate the importance of WBL to enhance the quality of work force, there is no well-established WBL system as part of the formal TVET system in place. Collaboration and coordination between the private sector and relevant government stakeholders is limited. Capacities of key stakeholders from the public and private sector to develop WBL regulatory framework and to implement WBL mechanisms are weak.|
|Objectifs||To improve career opportunities for unemployed youth and low-skilled workers.|
(i) Young women and men aged 15-24 years who are not in education, employment or training
(ii) Low-skilled workers/employees
Overall target for these two groups is 3000 (1’200 unemployed youth and 1’800 low-skilled workers) with 50% women
(iii) 150 participating companies
|Effets à moyen terme||Unemployed young women and men, especially those with limited education and early school leavers as well as low skilled workers, are equipped with labour market relevant skills that enable better employability and integration into the formal TVET system.|
Principaux résultats attendus:
1a: Strengthened collaboration between Switzerland and ASEAN to promote exchange and best practices on WBL
1b: Established/enhanced coordination among regulatory authorities and industry representatives of CLM.
2. Integration of WBL into TVET systems through a) issuance of WBL regulations and guidelines, which include integration of WBL into National Qualification Frameworks and b) developed guidelines for assessment and certification, including Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).
3. WBL for selected occupations in selected industrial sectors implemented, including established National Occupational Skills Standards (NOSS) and qualifications/curricula for implementation of WBL; assessment of trainees’ skills and certification of successful candidates.
Selected CLM industry representatives take a leading role in WBL, supporting development of sector specific NOSS / qualifications / curricula, implementing WBL, assessing skills and supporting certification of trainees.
