1. Colombian context for T & T education Colombia has good condition for prosperity - Government set good direction for development : ´´PROSPERIDAD PARA TODOS´´ - People possess the aspiration for development. - Possess abundant natural resources (oil, gold, silver, emeralds, platinum, coal) - Have good geographic conditions (size & location & diversity of land, seaports) - Have good demographic conditions (size & diversity of population) - There are 500 million people who are speaking espanol. Economic status of Colombia - Colombia is in the process of economic growth and poverty reduction. - Industrialization is ongoing in Colombia (service 53%, industry 38%, agriculture 9% ) with large informal sector. Need to develop chemical & machinary (major import items) industry. - Unemployment rate of Colombia was 9.6% in Disparaties across & within departments are significant in Colombia. Gini coefficient(0.578) is 7 th in the world
Present status of Colombian T & T education - T & T education is provided in four types of tertiary education institutions. - About 32% of tertiary students are studying in T & T levels in There are big differences in tertiary enrollments among departments. - There exists T & T education demand. T&T graduates earn 3 times more than highschool graduates, but earn 1/3 of master´s degree holders. - Number of T & T students are increasing, but T & T institutions are decreasing. T & T students in upper tertiary institutions are increasing. - Teaching staff in tertiary institutions posess lower academic degrees. doctorate 4%, master 19% in MEN wants to increase T & T students up to 45% of tertiary students.
2.Presupposition : Colombia´s strategy for economic develompment Colombia need to provide (more) industrial complexes to promote economic development. - To construct infrastructures for the convenience of factory installation & operation. (land, road, water supply, communication, transportation, etc.) - To locate industrial complexes in areas convenient to export goods (near seaports) - To construct industrial complexes in poor departments first, and expand nationwide (e.g. La Guajira, Choco, Vaupes, Vichada department) - To construct light industry complexes first and extend to complexes for heavy/high-tech industries Need to induce factories to the industrial complexes. - To provide financial support & tax benefit to Colombian entrepreneurs for factory installation & operation in the complex - To induce foreign enterprises to install factories in the complexes
Need to proceed for the development of heavy & high-tech industry - Heavy & high-tech industry can provide more profits than light industry. - Engineers and R & D manpowers are important in high-tech industry, and thus need to be brought up through higher education. By pursuing the economic development strategy, Colombian economy will bring the following results. - Colombian´s per capita GDP will grow with the growth of export. - Percentage of the population with unsatisfied basic needs will be decreased. - Economic disparities among departments & regions will be decreased. - Demand for welfare service & lesiure activities will be increased. - Demand for skilled manpower will be increased. - People´s ability to pay for higher education will be increased.
Process of Korea economic development unit : US$ Year Export Volume GDP per Capita Notes billion (in 1957) 67Major export item were raw materials, marine foods in 1950s billion 90 (estimate) Economic development plan was implemented since First industrial complex was constructed in Ulsan area in billion1,034 Pohang Steel Company began its operation in Clothes, textile, footwear, electronic items were major export items in billion2,000 64K D-ram was developed by Samsung in Steel became major export items in early 1980s and ship-building in later 1980s billion10,841 Heavy - technological items (Semi-conductor, computer, mobile phone, automobile) occupied over 80% of earnings from export billion (in 2007) 20,759 There are 549 industrial complexes in (excluding farm industry complex) Export composition : 1st industry 2%, light industry 7%, heavy-chemical industry 91% Korean Example Korean Example

3. Future manpower demand in Colombia In case Colombia pursues economic development policy mentioned above, Colombia will face the following manpower demand in future. - Demand for trained/skilled manpower will be increased in general. - Manpower demand in light industry will be increased first, and demand for heavy & high-tech manpower will be increased later. - As economy grows, demand for manpower in service & welfare will be increased. - The importance of R & D manpower will be increased to improve the productivity of industries. - Demand for higher education will be increased. - Higher education institutions will be required to provide high quality manpowers.
4.Technologies need to be taught to satisfy future manpower demand Traditional areas of technologies - Industrial technolgies : architectural, mechanical, electrical technologies, etc. - Agricultural & Veterinary areas : livestocks, pomiculture, foriculture, etc. - Medical areas : medicine, nursing, pharmacy, etc. - Social sciences : economics, administration, education, politics, etc. - Humanities : languages, history, philosophies, arts, etc. New areas that will be emphasized in future - Up to date technologies : robotics, information processing, life sciences, etc. - Welfare areas : therapy, health-care, leasure activities, etc. - Service areas : food services, tour services, etc. T & T manpower should possess not only T & T skills but also general abilities such as language, data analysis, etc.
Considerations in organizing T & T education curriculum - Technics/technologies should be trained throughly. - Both lecture and lab practice need to be provided. - On-site(industry) practice need to be provided. - Humanistic education courses/opportunities through extra-curricular activities need to be provided. - Opportunity to course selection need to be provided. - Career guidance need to be provided. - Students´ caree path need to be considered and opportunities for further study should be provided. - Proof of abilities need to be demonstrated by acquiring some certificates. - The higher the education level, the more broad skill & theoretical training is necessary.

6. National certification system to check the quality of education (1)Concept of national certification system Function of national certificate system - Certification illustrates worker´s ability objectively. - Certification can guide the direction of manpower education & training. - Certification helps proper selection and placement in industries. - Certification motivates people´s effort for self-training. Education Market Labor Market Work Education Certificate
National technical certification system in Korea There are 512 national technical certificates, 148 national certificates, 88 public certificates, and 2,600 private certificates in Korea. Ministry of Labor Overall Management of System - Operation of NTQS Review Comm. - Making plans for administration of certification exams - Administration of basic laws and qualification system Other Ministries Utilization of Qualification Holders - Administering other related laws - Disciplinary action (i.e. cancelation of qualification) Administrative Institutions (HRD Service Korea, KCCI) Implementation and Administration of Certification - Formation of certification examination questions - Administration of examinations - Registration of certification Korean Example Korean Example

Higher education system in Korea Major functions of universities in Korea - Some top level universities positioning themselves as research – focused university and concentrate their efforts on research and graduate education. - Second level universities think themselves as education – focused university and concentrate their efforts on engineer level education. - Junior colleges perform the function of job preparation and provide two or three years of technological programs. Air and Correspondence University in Korea - Korea has one national Air and Correspondence University and its graduates won high reputation in Korea. - There are several virtual higher education institutions, but they are not receiving much focus from public. Beginning age of higher education - Higher education begins after 12 years of basic & secondary education in Korea Korean Example Korean Example
