Trends in Articulation Arrangements for Technical and Vocational Education in the South East Asian Region.
Haas, Adrian R.
Trends in articulation arrangements for technical and vocational education (TVE) in the South East Asia region were studied. A key feature of articulation is the existence of pathways that allow graduates of one course of study to progress to other courses. Effective articulation opens up advancement for individuals and helps to create a flexible workforce which allows countries to capitalize on opportunities that advance economic growth. Two precursors for effective TVE articulation are (1) general availability of primary and secondary education; and (2) a higher education system that has some capacity to accept other than secondary school graduates into undergraduate courses. Broad availability of TVE/higher education articulation appears to correlate with economies that have a significant services sector, high technology industries and substantial manufacturing capacity and that tend to enhance the status of TVE. (Approximately two thirds of the document consists of country profiles of Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand, which include overviews of the economic and educational status of each country, of postsecondary TVE, and of each country's articulation arrangements. Seventy-six endnotes and a list of individuals interviewed are appended.) (CG)
