Introduction

The greening TVET is new socio-economic idea and paradigm strategies of most countries specifically in Asia and the Pacific, which seeks to achieve economic development, while at the same time protecting the environment and achieving sustainable economic and social development. This entails transitioning to green jobs and green skills, and to creating new jobs in relation to the greening of workforces. Green jobs are relevant across all key sectors: agriculture, manufacturing, building, transport, tourism, and renewable energy. Skills acquisition and enhancement have great positive implications for all aspects of education and training, and for businesses . Over the past several decades, technological developments have been phenomenal due to globalization and regional advancements. Rapid environmental shifts are causing fundamental transformations that cause a dramatic impact on management of organizations in general and TVET. The world of organizations and management is changing. Due to rapid ubiquitous changes, TVET should not be regarded as a deep and profound bottomless space. TVET must respond and acquire a modern strategic mindset in meeting the future at the forefront of global challenges.

At this point, TVET should further realign itself to be sensitive to the present and upcoming trends, issues and challenges that will chart its direction in making itself a significant and much-needed alternative to mainstream education. This would require extensive efforts on identifying present trends, learning from past experiences and charting future directions as guided by the findings from the past and present. There is a need to shift the TVET Institutions’ strategies in regards with planning on program offerings specifically on the jobs that will be soon will become an ‘obsolete’ because the jobs of the most industries will require “green jobs”. This training program is very timely to develop an action plans ensuring that our programs will be more responsive to the needs of our partner industries.
