The main objectives of the workshops are: (1) Strengthening capacity for NIVT staff on issues relating to the development of the annual TVET Report such as implementing the TVET Report development procedure, preparing qualified key questions and indicators, properly analysing data, developing professional writing skills; and (2) Discussion of possible topics and cross-cutting issues to be covered in the TVET Report 2016.
In the opening remarks, Dr. Vu Xuan Hung – NIVT’s Director has emphasized the co-efforts of all stakeholders in compiling the TVET Report 2015 and figured out foundational ideas on making the TVET Report 2016 under the recent enforcement of new Law on Vocational Education and Training, the transition in state management for VET. The TVET Repot 2016 is expected to be more comprehensive in comparison with the old series through integrating cross-cutting issues related to Sustainable Devleopment Goals (SDGs) and Gender Mainstreaming.
In this regard, Mr. Michael Schwarz (BIBB) has given a presentation detailing the development of the indicators (the definition of indicators, the functions, how to compare the indicators, classification of indicators, analyses of indicators, criteria of indicators’ quality – SMART (Specific, Measureable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound), and development steps of indicators).
Speaking of possible cross-cutting issues to be engaged in the coming TVET Report with focus on SDGs and Gender Mainstreaming, Mr. Schwarz has presented 17 SDGs set out by United Nations, the targets and indicators accompanied with each goal to facilitate the later group discussion among the participants to verify existing SDGs-related information in the TVET Report 2015 and possible SDGs indicators to be integrated in the TVET Report 2016.
The 1-day working session also include Gender Mainstreaming and Inclusive TVET presentation from Dr. Sandra Liebscher (BIBB) that provides many useful and insightful information on the definition of Gender Mainstreaming and Inclusive TVET, monitoring instruments of Gender Mainstreaming, methodology for Gender Mainstreaming and Inclusive TVET to be integrated in TVET Report 2016, German experiences in such topics, indicator development for such topics, ways to select and collect relevant indicators, and possible templates for TVET Report development.
The workshop has reached its objectives and agreement among the stakeholders on the common understanding of cross-cutting issues for TVET Report 2016 (Gender Mainstreaming, Inclusive TVET, SDGs). Additionally, many useful experiences and comments from the stakeholders and experts on the abovementioned topics have been shared in the workshop to find better solutions to address difficulties in the making of TVET Report 2016. Upon the completion of this workshop, a 3-day coaching session (March 29th - 31st) will be held at NIVT on the steps to write the TVET Report 2016.Last modified on Tuesday, 28 March 2017
