Office of the Vocational Education Commission (OVEC) and the CPSC organized a training course on core competency and evaluation between 25 and 29 March 2013 at Indrachai Commercial College. The opening ceremony, which took place on 25 March 2013 at Town in Town Hotel in Bangkok, was chaired by the OVEC Secretary, General Dr. Chaipruek Serirak.
According to Dr. Chaipruek, this training was launched by OVEC and CPSP, which is an internationally famous organization on vocational education management. It aims to enable participating teachers, educators and educational personnel to gain knowledge and understanding as well as to apply the knowledge and experience from the training to manage vocational education in order to serve the needs of the labor market and entrepreneurs. At present, OVEC is developing a new curricula focusing on the educational management required by core competency. Every vocational student who completes his studies has to be able to assess his core competency. Apart from attending lectures from CPSP's speakers and exchanging knowledge with other participants, all participants will have the opportunity to undertake field studies at a company so that they can use the actual work of the company as a framework for vocational education management in the future.
