Resolutions

UNESCO UNEVOC Regional Conference held at RMIT Melbourne 11th-15th November 1996 National Delegates Meeting (15/11/96)

1. The Conference unanimously and collectively resolves and urges UNESCO that UNEVOC be continued and strengthened through the provision of a large quantum of financial, technical and human resources to enable UNEVOC to achieve its objectives and purposes.

2. The Conference urges UNESCO UNEVOC to arrange further meetings and conferences at national and regional level in the near future, to follow up the recommendations of the conference and other new initiatives.

3. The Conference wishes to place on record its appreciation for the arrangements made by RMIT for the organisation of the Regional Conference in co-operation with the Australian National Commission for UNESCO, DEETYA, Adelaide Institute of TAFE, Canberra and Sydney Institutes of Technology, and the Victorian Office of Training and Further Education.

4. It is hereby resolved that the concept of UNEVOC Centres of Excellence in selected areas, be formally acknowledged by UNESCO.

The mechanism for this might be that the UNESCO International Advisory Committee recommends UNESCO gives recognition of Centres.

5. Whereas it is generally recognised that UNEVOC has emerged as a well organised and effective organ of UNESCO in the Asia and Pacific Region, the unparallel success to UNEVOC in this region lies to a large extent in the dynamic and capable leadership of the Program Specialist in TVE, Mr M.A. Qureshi.

The Conference wishes to acknowledge his very significant contribution.

6. The success of UNEVOC in the Asia Pacific region is due to the key role played by the program specialist in TVE in the Principal Regional Office in Bangkok.

The Conference noted that the incumbent will retire at the end of April 1997.

The Conference unanimously resolves and urges that the Director General of UNESCO take the necessary actions to ensure a replacement is appointed before the end of April so that quality and momentum of UNEVOC programs is maintained.

7. Although there has been a number of regional meetings, there have not been many inter-regional meetings. Therefore it is recommended that more UNEVOC inter-regional meeting occur in future.

8. There should be more UNEVOC meeting to examine Information Technology (IT) issues with the following matters being important:

· Use of IT to communicate and network
· Impact of IT on TVE provisions
· Use IT on program delivery
· Use of IT to provide TVE to those who are not currently being reached.

9. It is therefore resolved that guidelines for a flexible exemplar TVE Policy formulation framework for Asia and Pacific region be developed.

That this process be managed by a Core Monitoring Group.

10. That the Conference supports the direction that the UNEVOC Clearing House and Electronic Network project and recommends that funding is provided to facilitate training for national UNEVOC Centre staff in using and contributing to the database and network.

11. The Conference noted that the Exemplar Curriculum in Entrepreneurial Skills is a valuable project. The project should continue to receive support from UNESCO and other sources.

12. The Conference endorses the UNESCO Education Program research into Trends in Articulation Arrangements for Technical and Vocational Education in South East Asian countries being undertaken by RMIT.
