Abstract

Vocational training system for a skilled workforce has been highlighted as one of the key driving forces behind Korea’s economic development. Korea is well-known for adopting a government-led vocational training strategy to assure the supply of a skilled industrial workforce, according to the 1st-6th Korea Economic Development Plans.
This paper examines the main features and evolution of this strategy, from the 1960s to the 1990s. In particular, it discusses how vocational training policies have contributed to Korea’s economic development. The findings in the paper highlight a set of important lessons for the design and implementation of vocational training policies, which maybe useful for other developing countries.
This paper consists of five parts.
Firstly, we explain the background of introducing the vocational training system for a skilled workforce as a sub-part of Korea Economic Development Plans. At the early stage of industrialization, we designed vocational training provision by defining the class and level of manpower needed in industry. In short, the vocational training system focused supply of a skilled workforce. (The rest omitted)
