Curriculum Design and Standard Setting for Vocational Education and Training in Taiwan, R.O.C. = Jong Hwa Min Gwo Jyr Yeh Jiaw Yuh Yeu Shiunn Liann De Keh Cherng Sheh Jih Her Biau Joen Jy Jyh Ding.

Three categories of vocational education and training exist in Taiwan: technological and vocational education (TVE), public training (PT), and enterprise training (ET). Together, the TVE programs provided in senior vocational schools, junior colleges, and institutes/universities of technology constitute a complete system that parallels the academic education system. PT is provided through 13 public vocational training institutes that provide approximately 90 programs and 8,600 training slots annually. The institutes are affiliated with various government agencies and supervised by three administrative bodies. The main role of TVE and PT is to develop a diverse technical and managerial work force. Taiwan's Ministry of Education standardizes and promulgates the country's TVE curricula and revises TVE curriculum standards approximately every 10 years. The standards are currently being revised, and several research and development projects to improve the TVE curriculum design process are now under way. The possibility of bilateral exchanges and cooperation between Australia and Taiwan has been explored, and the following possible forms of cooperation/exchange have been proposed: exchange of information about innovations and experience in VET curriculum design and textbook development; joint studies of VET provision; and exchanges of VET teachers/trainers and student teachers/trainers.
