Technological and Vocational Education in Taiwan.
Lee, Lung-Sheng
Beyond the nine years of compulsory education, Taiwan has the following two additional streams in the educational system: general academic education (GAE) and technological and vocational education (TVE). TVE has the two key features of a complete system to ensure students' horizontal and vertical mobility and a main schooling stream, parallel to the GAE stream at upper secondary and post-secondary school levels. The three levels of TVE--vocational high school, junior college of technology, and university/college of technology (UT/CT)--aim to prepare applicants for technical-managerial posts at the basic, middle, or advanced level. The key prospects regarding TVE in Taiwan are the following: (1) establishing relevant laws to further the development of TVE; (2) adapting the TVE schooling system to improve TVE graduates' access to further education; (3) keeping up with national economic development by cultivating the technical/managerial workforce; (4) developing a lifelong education system while assisting students with career development; (5) reconstructing the TVE curricula and concentrating on industry's needs; and (6) encouraging the participation of disadvantaged groups to achieve equality in education.
