United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Principal Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific.
This technical and vocational education (TVE) profile on Bhutan is one in a series of profiles of UNESCO member countries. It is intended to be a handy reference on TVE systems, staff development, technical cooperation, and information networking. Part I, Policy Concern, provides general information on the education delivery system, the role of primary education, the role of secondary education, technical and vocational education, technical education, and teacher training. Part II, Planning and Management of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET), addresses problems and challenges; implementation of the plan; involvement of international assistance; and partnership with the Colombo Plan Staff College. Two charts illustrate the present situation with respect to the three basic levels of planning, and the present strengths and weaknesses of the planning processes prevailing in Bhutan, respectively. Strategies are proposed for the improvement of the planning process. Part III, Training Modes and Systems, describes the current state of technical education and training in Bhutan and these aspects of the technical and vocational education division: rural skills development, national inplant training scheme, limited skills training center, needs of the country to develop and improve technician education, and new development. Part IV, Women Technician in Industrial Development, discusses their participation at various levels. The bibliography contains 10 references. (YLB)
