The Future ASEAN Agenda for TVET was developed by a group of 20 representatives from chambers, associations and companies from all ten ASEAN member states during the course of several workshops between June 2018 and March 2019.

At the heart of the Future ASEAN Agenda for TVET are 45 recommendations outlining action-oriented policy recommendations for labour-market oriented TVET reforms in the ASEAN region. Each recommendation describes a specific activity or field of action that would either directly or indirectly strengthen the leadership of business and industry in TVET and ultimately contribute to improving the quality of TVET across ASEAN.

The recommendations are grouped under 9 thematic headers: 1) Enhancing the relevance and quality of TVET regulations and strategies, 2) Establishing public-private models for skill standard development and assessments, 3) Strengthening the leadership of business membership organisations in TVET, 4) Rebranding TVET, 5) Mobilizing companies to engage in TVET, 6) Ensuring sufficient funding for TVET, 7) Improving the quality of training delivery, 8) Deepening the collaboration of TVET schools with business and industry, 9) Intensifying research on TVET and future skills needs.
