Webinar Presentation


Alumni is one of the important components and is well-established in the TVET sector. Not all TVET institutions have equally understood the value of alumni and this perception needs to be changed because of many benefits it provides. Understanding alumni engagement in the TVET management is vital for the TVET institutions for many reasons like it increases the employability, enhances TVET institute image, it can support in maintaining quality education and provides materials & funds to the institutes. TVET professionals need to broaden the scope and move the focus away from funds only and more on the non-monetary support roles played by TVET alumni. TVET institutions and alumni relationships should be converted into an intentional and mutually beneficial partnership with the purpose of students’ success and betterment of the TVET institutions. Alumni engagement impacts positively on all sides involved- the TVET institution, the alumni and current students. When the TVET institutions go through the international institutional accreditation, alumni plays an important role in convincing the accreditors on their roles, importance, and activities carried by them.

Alumni are seen as valuable as they are the key sources of information to define institute-level strategies and enhance study programs. By having alumni, TVET institutions can develop or revise curriculum involving the alumni members as they know as equally as the industry experts the demand of the latest skills and knowledge in the labor market.

Alumni are one of the key stakeholders for TVET institutions and their contribution to the achievement of TVET institutions strategic goals is evident. In the Asia and Pacific, it is observed that countries like the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore and their TVET institutions have given high importance to alumni and they are managing it very well. Thus, the time has come for all the TVET intuitions to give priority on establishing alumni and get maximum benefits from it. Therefore, CPSC has designed the webinar to share knowledge and practices of Alumni management in TVET institutions and how to strengthen the relation between the two.


This webinar session is designed to provide concept, good practices, and management of Alumni for maximizing its benefits to the TVET institutions. The Alumni & TVET institutions roles and strategies on strengthening relationships will be explained in the webinar.
