Current Provision and Potential of Technical and Vocational Education and Training

The governments of many developing countries regard technical and vocational education and training as one of the key elements in national development. This view is held in countries of all sizes and stages of development, but particularly so in Island Developing and Other Specially Disadvantaged States where isolation and dependence on other countries for technological support creates a pressing need for the development of their own technical education and training systems. This development of technical education in small states during recent years has followed an approach adopted in larger, more industrialised countries, that is the establishment of purpose built technical colleges to provide skilled labour at craft and technical levels.
