Thailand is getting richer because the labour force is working harder, not necessarily smarter, a seminar was told yesterday.
QLF organized the international conference “Youth and work-force age’s skills development for works: strategy and learning lesson of work from OECD member countries to economic and developing cooperation to promote labor skills of youth and work-force age.
QLF and networks are cooperated to organize a workshop “Learning Management Plan for Occupations” to support provinces’ ability in education management for preparing the readiness to children in occupations and conforming to economic development of the country in long term.
CHIANG MAI now has its own educational reform strategy thanks to a partnership of various stakeholders. The strategy is scheduled for implementation between this year and 2019, with students to learn skills matching local demands.
Career academic and multi-sectoral partnerships in education management are seen as the main criteria for the reform of the education system, and also key factors for the country’s economic development.
The education system is failing in properly equipping juveniles to join the job market, as six out of 10 only complete at most a higher secondary or vocational education, a seminar heard.
From the cabinet’s resolution of 11 January 2011, QLF agreed on a 2011-15 work plan to reform Thai Education under the concept of “For an equal and just Thailand of the future.” One of the main tasks is to create a good future for the country through human development, especially the development of children and youth.
