Occupational Safety and Health in TVET

Background


This concept paper is prepared for the CPSC webinar on the topic “Occupational Safety and Health in TVET”. The skilled workforce are the major contributors to the economic and social development of the contemporary global society. Unfortunately, their health and safety are often negatively influenced by the working environment, social factors, and behaviours. Although the employers are primarily responsible for providing healthy and safe working environments, the workers are also expected to follow the OSH rules and regulations to prevent work-related injuries and diseases.


Occupational health is a discipline devoted to prevention and management of occupational diseases, accidents and disabilities and to elimination of occupational factors and conditions hazardous to health and safety at work. The goal of an occupational safety and health program is to foster a safe and healthy occupational environment for the students and teachers. OSH also protects all the general public who may be affected by the occupational environment.


The program addresses the incidence of occupational diseases and work-related diseases and injuries among workers through health promotion and protection in all workplaces. It aims to improve workers' access to basic occupational health services at the working contexts.


In TVET, Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) is an interdisciplinary activity concerned with the prevention of occupational risks and hazards inherent to each occupation. OSH programs objectives are to:

  • Secure the health, safety and welfare of employees and other people at work
  • Protect the public from the health and safety risks of commercial activities
  • Eliminate workplace risks and hazards

While TVET education is concerned with the acquisition of knowledge and skills for the world of work, occupational safety and health (OSH) aims at the protection and promotion of safety and health at the workplace. Thus, it is up most important and urgent to train TVET students in OSH at the TVET institute level and after the graduation the students will comply with the OSH on the job.


Thus, it is very important to integrate OSH components in the TVET education and train the students on it and make it habit for the students to follow the rules and regulations of OSH.



Focus


This webinar session is designed to provide concept and knowledge on occupational safety and health, its management in TVET institutions, and need of OSH training to the students. It will also provide knowledge on different subject-wise safety measures & health and provide subject-wise good practices found in the TVET institutions.



Objective


  • Sharing the concept and management guidelines on occupational safety and health program for the TVET institutions.

Skills for Cooperative Management

Date: May 11, 2021 /
Program Type: Webinar /





Background


The establishment of Cooperative societies were created long before the advent of the fair trade movement to help workers improve their livelihoods and protect their interests. Cooperatives are organizations of people who have the same needs. Cooperatives are operating in an environment that requires exceptional or transformational leadership qualities and changed management systems for the success of associations of cooperatives today.


Transforming federations requires change. One of the perceived bottlenecks in effecting change in federations relates to the lack of change leaders and a lack of capacity to develop a vision and implement change. Transformative leaders need to have a clear vision, a solid target objectives for the federation and have the strong motivation and leadership skills to drive change.


Leadership is about managing change and guiding growth in fluid environments. Leadership requires a ‘change capable culture’ that gives space to lead. Moreover, to sustainably grow, federations or cooperatives are shifting from viewing leadership development as a “nice to have” to a “need to have”. Leadership development programs are mission critical to federations’ or cooperatives’ organizational success.


Thus, CPSC is conducting the webinar to make aware and realize the need of having outreach programs in each subject, manage it, and obtain the results from it.



Focus


The webinar session is designed to provide a pIatform for reflecting on the principles of cooperatives/federations and discuss how the leadership and management dynamics and skills can contribute to achieving the objectives/targets of the cooperative/federation.



Objective


The program aims for participants to:

  • reflect on the principles of cooperatives/federations;
  • apply methods on how the leadership and management dynamics and skills can contribute to achieving the objectives/targets of the cooperative/federation;
  • identify issues and goals of managing change and improving adaptability through managing skills and strategies.

Background


This concept paper is prepared for the CPSC webinar on the topic “Outreach Program in TVET”. The three main goals of an outreach program are to improve learning, promoting community engagement, and strengthening communities through addressing their needs. An outreach program creates a partnership between the communities and the TVET institutions. Such programs build on each other's strengths and develop their roles as change agents for improving TVET students’ knowledge, civic responsibility, and providing solutions to communities’ problems and needs.


The outreach program provides students with an opportunity to better understand their course content, make them aware of the real world problems, valuing the inputs provided by multiple teachers and also developing their career. Students are always found to be enthusiastic for training in an outreach program with a sense of growing confidence in their abilities and development of skills practices. It is well known fact that the opportunity to apply learned knowledge and skills in real world settings will enhance the students’ occupational competencies.


Outreach programs are now incorporated within the TVET curricula in the most of the TVET systems in the Asia and The Pacific. The outreach program strengthen knowledge and skills gained in the institutions by providing different kind of services to the communities. This will also ultimately enhance the TVET institutions image and gain respect and recognition from the stakeholders and the community people. It is also important for the TVET institutions to evaluate the impact of an outreach program on academic development, personal development, and civic responsibility of TVET students.


Assessing the real needs of community and addressing them, is one of the important tasks for TVET institutions. TVET educations becomes successful, if only those needs identified in the community is addressed by the outreach program.


Thus, CPSC is conducting the webinar to make aware and realize the need of having outreach programs in each subject, manage it, and obtain the results from it.



Focus


This webinar session is designed to provide concept and knowledge on outreach program, its management, and conduction. It will also provide step by step guidelines to conduct outreach program, collecting data of program and skill & knowledge transferred to the community, linking community with the TVET students, and preparing outreach program report.



Objective


  • Sharing the concept and management guidelines on conducting outreach program for the TVET institutions.
