Good Practice in Technical and Vocational Education and Training

Publication | November 2009

Many ADB developing member countries (DMCs) suffer from a shortage of qualified workers. This good practice guide supports ADB's operations in technical and vocational education and training (TVET) and dialogue among stakeholders in the DMCs on the TVET sector and its directions. The booklet highlights strategic questions and presents investment design issues, including the strengths and weaknesses of different forms of training and financing. It discusses the lessons learned from ADB's experiences in the sector and their implications for future TVET projects. Checklists provide a practical tool for evaluating proposed TVET investments.
