1.   Introduction

In most of the regional countries, significant reforms have been made in recent years in the field of better adapting TVET to the needs of the labour market and employment system. Changes affecting the structure of the market, technological innovations and new ways of organizing work have required new knowledge and the development of areas of competency that previously only very rarely formed a part of TVET systems. Also, as a result of the demand for new professional positions and the higher-level qualifications these call for, TVET systems obviously had to be modified in order to adequately provide an answer to the new requirements of world of work.

There are many initiatives recently being taken by Mongolia to improve quality in TVET programs. Curriculum development has received particular attention in most countries, and there is a general trend in the region to move to competency-based approaches. Developing the competency-based approach for curricula development needs to be part of a Mongolia’s broader objective, which is required in involving private sector businesses in a systemic TVET reform process.

Competency-based qualifications are nothing new, for indeed that is the way that the world of technical and vocational education and training has gone in an attempt to meet the needs of the labour market for graduates who can function immediately as competent workers, once they leave their various training institutions. This is an area where significant efforts have been made with the objective of improving the relevance and quality of training programs. The extent and depth of current reforms in this area vary by country, but every country in this region is currently undertaking some type of initiatives to address the issue of curriculum reform. A common thread among the regional countries is the role curricula reform is playing to increase the relevance of training programs. Competency-based approach requires a direct link between public institutions and businesses to update the learning content of training programs and to ensure a constant adaptation of training programs as technologies evolve. Competency-based curriculum development is increasingly becoming the most important features for TVET is in its orientation towards development of workforce on the world of work.
