Industry 4.0 & Digitalisation in Southeast Asia

Welcome to the TVET knowledge hub for Industry 4.0 & Digitalisation in Southeast Asia.


Digital transformation and the fourth industrial revolution are rapidly changing the skills demanded by the industry and how these skills are delivered in TVET education. While the specific requirements for sectors and skills demand are still unclear, there is a consensus that skills requirements will be changing a lot faster. As a result, TVET systems must become more flexible, quicker to adapt, and put a greater focus on lifelong learning.

Report

UNESCO-UNEVOC (2022) - Digitalization has led to extensive changes in the skills required for work and life. For technical and vocational education and training (TVET) institutions to remain relevant and attractive, they need to identify and introduce digital skills and competencies for the changing world of work, and to better utilize the opportunities provided by digitalization, particularly distance learning. Their success in harnessing the benefits and tackling the challenges of digitalization largely depends on the digital capabilities of TVET teachers and trainers. The study provides a ...

These advances have a name: digitalization. We are witnessing digitalization as a driving force which affects all spheres of life. At its core, this driving force is based on a new paradigm of technological development which creates new perspectives for our interaction with the world around us.

Report

UNESCO-UNEVOC (2021) - Temporary restrictions on movement and physical distancing measures resulting from the pandemic have led to the closure of many TVET institutions and skills development organizations in Trinidad and Tobago. As remote education and training become the norm, there is a high expectation that TVET teachers and instructors will be able to deliver effective and relevant online training programmes. Providing remote TVET teaching can be challenging for education providers, especially when it comes to ensuring courses are equally accessible to learners with special needs and dis...

Report

UNESCO-UNEVOC (2021) - Due to its close links to the labour market, technical and vocational education and training (TVET) can play an important role to improve job opportunities and livelihoods for young people, and in particular for disadvantaged youth. However, this potential is not always fully realized, and relatively little research and evidence has been collected about the barriers disadvantaged youth face when accessing to and progressing through TVET. This paper maps some of the main barriers disadvantaged youth face in TVET and examines available evidence on strategies and approache...
