- 20 Downloads
What approaches should be taken to promote a better understanding of definitions, classification, and operations of “a COE in TVET?”
Are there any relevant or equivalent operating samples of COEs in TVET in Asia and Europe?
The researchers are incredibly ambitious to see the contents and findings of this study produce both in-depth and broad academic benefits. As described in the aim, a comparative analysis involving case studies in the four countries from the two continents are required. There are neither much studies in the world which clearly proposed the definition; the identification and the demonstration of the applied practical guidelines nor in the dimension of excellence of TVET education management because all that exists are the context of excellence in business and nor in education sector that are often referred particularly to the level of Higher Education and that the Basic Education cannot be applied to TVET because of its being of different context.
