Policy Priorities for a More Responsive Technical and Vocational Education and Training System in Cambodia
Asian Development Bank | November 2016
This policy brief identifies binding constraints and makes recommendations to promote a technical and vocational education and training (TVET) system that is more responsive to Cambodia’s labor market needs. The findings are drawn from a 2013 labor market survey of the skills needs of 222 large enterprises in five provinces: Battambang, Kampot, Siem Reap, Svay Rieng, and Takeo; as well as the capital Phnom Penh.1 The study was the first-ever attempt at assessing employers’ skills needs at provincial and enterprise levels. The findings and recommendations were confirmed at a stakeholder consultation in June 2016. This brief is intended to provide TVET policy makers and planners with an analysis of education and workplace challenges; options to address the challenges in terms of local context, capacity, and priorities; and a menu of recommendations and suggestions for further research.
