German Foundation for International Development (DSE), Bonn (Germany).; United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Berlin (Germany).
The two papers in this document explain various options and modalities for UNEVOC (International Project on Technical and Vocational Education) Member States' financing of their individual systems of technical and vocational education and disseminating experiences in this area. "Financing Vocational Education and Training in Developing Countries" (Pradeep Bolita) provides a systematic overview of various modalities of public and private finance of technical and vocational education. It describes four of the more well-known financing mechanisms: public financing, enterprise financing, private and public sponsored financing, and international donor assistance. The advantages and disadvantages of each type are identified and policy implications indicated, with some country examples."Financing Vocational Education: Concepts, Examples, and Tendencies" (David Atchoarena) draws conclusions from experience with various existing concepts of financing. It first reviews the main issues, such as cost sharing and subsidiarity; apprenticeship; privately financed institutional training; the use of earmarked taxation to finance training; and training funds. It then focuses on selected country experiences, illustrating different kinds of strategies and instruments involved in the financing of vocational education. These countries are highlighted: Brazil, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Mauritius, and Ivory Coast. A final chapter looks at future trends and variables affecting funding scheme options.
