Standardisation in TVET Teacher Education


Edited By Joachim Dittrich, Jailani Md Yunos, Georg Spöttl and Masriam Bukit

Standardisation in TVET Teacher Education discusses issues connected with quality development in teacher education for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET). Starting from some insight in the requirements on teacher education for TVET from different regions of the world, reflections on existing standardisation approaches for TVET Teacher Education from different perspectives are presented. A number of initiatives that are already implemented in order to solve specific issues in TVET Teacher Education are described. Finally, some of the approaches and concepts that were developed in the course of the EU Asia Link cofunded project «Development of Transnational Standards for Teacher Training for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TT-TVET) with a Multidisciplinary and Industrial Orientation» are presented. The majority of contributions were presented and discussed during the «First World Congress on Teacher Education for Technical and Vocational Education and Training – Shaping TVET Teacher Education for the Changing World of Work» held in Bandung, Indonesia, in July 2008 which led to the Bandung Declaration on TVET Teacher Education.

The transnational standards that are developed by the TT-TVET project are intended to serve additional purposes that are related to international cooperation in the field of TVET teacher education. Besides facilitating the definition of the quality of education for the purpose of students’ and lecturers’ exchange they are intended to provide a basis for a common understanding of the philosophy of TVET teacher education and for its quality development, and last but not least they are intended to form the basis and the core object for research and development cooperation between TVET teacher education institutions from different countries and different cultures (TT-TVET Consortium 2005). With a view at the participating teacher education institutions, which currently are the partner institutions working together in the TT-TVET project, but which might be com- plemented in the future by additional institutions who are interested in joining the network (Dittrich 2009), the TT-TVET standards are developed so as to cater for the following aspects (Sp...
