THE CHEVRON ENJOY SCIENCE PROJECT PRESENTS 3 TVET HUB MODELS
In partnership with the Ministry of Labour’s Department of Skills Development (DSD), the Chevron Enjoy Science Project organized a 2nd Special STEM Thailand Forum on September 1st 2015. During keynote addresses, Mr. Rob Stowell and Mr. Pat Jones, TVET experts from the
Chisholm Institute in Australia, presented model TVET Hubs designed with extensive stakeholder input specifically for Thailand.
Speaking to a full audience, Mr. Stowell said that all TVET Hubs should achieve six major goals: create an active and real partnership between schools and industry organizations; produce STEM and TVET education programs that are relevant for students and industries; effectively and efficiently use TVET resources, including sharing them across education systems and industries; produce work-ready students with strong STEM skills; improve TVET teacher quality, making sure that they have the right technical, industrial, and pedagogical skills; and foster more a positive and accepted public image of TVET.
