The SEA-VET.NET TVET Good Practice Database showcases TVET practices that have been successfully implemented in Southeast Asia and are benchmarks for transformation towards quality TVET. Certified as ‘Good Practices’ by SEAMEO VOCTECH, all good practices are selected based on predefined criteria and reviewed by TVET experts.

What is GPD all about?
The Good Practice Database (GPD) enables Southeast Asian countries to showcase TVET practices that have been shown to work in their respective contexts. Policy-makers and practitioners can learn from these examples and apply and tailor them to their own contexts. The database is an important instrument for regional cooperation, contributing to the improvement of TVET systems across the region.
What qualifies a good practice
A TVET practice qualifies as a good practice (GP) if it fulfils six assessment criteria. The assessment criteria were developed between 2015 and 2017 by a technical regional working group, in collaboration with RECOTVET and SEAMEO VOCTECH.
What are the six assessment criteria?
PRIMARY CRITERIA – Impact, Innovation, Transferability & Replicability
SECONDARY CRITERIA – Trustworthiness, Efficiency, Stakeholder Engagement
The primary criteria have double weighting compared to the secondary criteria.
Who validates good practices?
SEAMEO VOCTECH reviews and validates each good practice in consultation with a Panel of External Reviewers formed from experts with substantial experiences in the SEA TVET systems.
How are Good Practices collected?
A practice can be nominated at any time via a submission form. Dedicated GP personnel are available to provide advice in filling out the forms.
Who can submit a practice?
Anyone. Examples of good practices may be submitted by staff on behalf of their institution or by individuals without any institutional affiliation.
Are there any incentives for the submitters?
If your nominated good practice meets the assessment criteria you will receive a certificate for your submission and the good practice will be published on SEA-VET.NET. You may also enter the ‘good practice competition’, where prizes include cash or in-kind awards. SEAMEO VOCTECH will announce these competitions through SEA-VET.NET.
How does the nomination process work?
The nomination process consists of THREE steps:
Step 1: Submission
Step 2: Review
Step 3: Publication
You will be notified of the progress of your nominated good practice.
What is the Good Practice Community?
The Good Practice Community is an online group under the Communities of Practice (CoP) section of SEA-VET.NET. Individuals can join this group to discuss good practices and share experiences with other members.
How do i join the Good Practice Community?
Registered users can join the group here. Registration takes just 1 minute and is free of charge.
