The Vocational Training Strategy for the Underprivileged Population in Taiwan, R.O.C.
Chang, Chi-Cheng
Vocational training strategies have been developed to assist underprivileged populations (middle-aged and elderly people, persons with disabilities, women-headed families, and aborigines) in Taiwan, which makes up about 20 percent of the population. These strategies include the following: enacting laws and regulations, creating projects to subsidize their employment and training, strengthening administrative organizations and promoting training, implementing vocational training, subsidizing local city and county government training efforts, and establishing quotas and supporting plans for hiring persons with disabilities. Problems in training underprivileged persons are as follows: providing child care, learning how to design training programs for middle-aged and elderly adults, finding suitable training for persons with disabilities, and developing job-retention skills for indigenous peoples. Attempts are being made to address these problems and find solutions so that these populations can receive the training they need to become productive and self-supporting citizens of Taiwan.
