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.
