Education System Reforms Reducing the number of subjects in public examinations and increasing SBA From Term System to Semester System Reducing content-based and increasing skill-based Innovating T & L approach by fully utilising project management approach
EVALUATION STUDY TECHNICAL AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION CURRICULUM MANAGEMENT
Relationship and output benefit between Stage 1 (TSSs learners) and Stage 2 (TSSs learners in Sem. 1 at polytechnics source: Further study by TVCD October/November 2004 Curriculum TSS InputProcessOutput Further Devt.
Research Findings The product of technical secondary schools (TSSs) perform much better in Semester 1 at polytechnics, compared to the product of secondary schools even though the take-off values (TOV) of TSSs is marginally lower From studies conducted by employers, there exists an expectation gap among employers toward the performance of TSSs product at the workplace a)the product of TSSs are competent and skillful, technically and academically b)However, employers evaluate highly personal attributes and soft / employability skills
Implementation of competency-based education Integration of hands-on and heads-on Articulation to institution of higher learning Entrepreneurial element across VSSs courses Vocational Stream REFORMS
Technical Curriculum Toward SBA & Employability Skills FUTURE CURRICULUM TOPICS contextualized Centralised Assessment 60-70% WORKSHOP PRACTICE PROJECTS PRESENTATION OTHERS School-based Assessment 30-40% Key Competencies 1. Collecting, analysing & organising information 2. Communicating ideas and information 3. Planning and organising activities 4.Working with others and in teams 5. Using mathematical ideas and techniques 6. Solving problems 7. Using technology * Other competencies i.e SCANS
