VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND EDUCATION
Scope Asia and the strong partners in education supports all kinds of education for the Timorese people.
From the start of the independence to this day the education policies which were implemented in Timor-Leste were intended to improve and transform the educational system and originated from Indonesia’s occupation of 24 years. Only when the population has had solid training, development can take place in the country.
Combining theory and practice - our education approach
SCOPE ASIA's idea is simple: Applying a modified form of the Swiss and German dual education system to Timor-Leste’s case.
A highly job market-oriented vocational training allows an easier career entry for Timor-Leste’s young generation, while offering at the same time constant growth of qualified specialists and executives. This broad occupational education subsequently leads to increased life-long learning among the students affected.
The essential element within this system is a distinct accentuation on the duality between theory and practical experience. Training in companies and at schools are planned to be the common form of vocational education, while academically organized teaching workshops represent another possible approach.
Having aligned offered apprenticeships with actually demanded qualifications and vacancies on the market, youth unemployment can be avoided as well as international competitiveness improved.
