Abstract

Skills development has played a critical role in the history of economic development in South Korea, where strong labor demand-driven approach effectively provided required skilled workers in time for industrialization. This approach has been well embedded in South Korea’s aid for skills development where the focus has been on developing industrial skilled workers, both of quantity and quality, for the countries in need. Korea’s skills development programs have been largely executed on such industrial trades as mechanics, electronics, automobile repairs, and ICT, where main components of the program include technical vocational and education (TVET) center building, training equipment provision, training curriculum design, as well as instructor training.
