ASEAN (01 April, 2019) - In-company training is a key instrument in improving the practical competencies of employees who are already in the workplace. For ASEAN, apart from striving for education systems, including technical and vocational education and training (TVET), to produce human resources that adequately meet skills needs of companies, it is equally important for companies to actively contribute through the provision of in-company training. In this regard, it is important to enhance the competency of in-company trainers and the certification of this competency to be in line with a recognised standard.

Beyond corporate social responsibility, in-company training is also an investment in the most important production factor of any company: its human resources. Indeed, it is not just TVET students who stand to benefit from high quality in-company training, but potentially all employees, in keeping with the ASEAN commitment to promoting lifelong learning.

This booklet details the standard for in-company trainers in ASEAN countries. It aims at enabling the harmonization of education standards and work requirements in the region through a structured system of on-the-job training. As a consequence, it creates qualified workforce for ASEAN in preparation for the upcoming regional integration and mobilization of skilled labour. 

This standard was developed by 60 experts from six ASEAN member states and is intended to be short, simple and easily adaptable.
