Background and Focus

Given the current rapidly-evolving situation with COVID-19, CPSC likes to take this opportunity to reassure that it will continue to deliver programs through the WEBINAR to the valued TVET stakeholders. As a Face-to-Face training is not possible, on-line training is the best solution which is also cost effective and time saving.

A webinar is an online seminar that turns a presentation into a real-time conversation from anywhere in the world. Webinars allow large groups of participants to engage in online discussions or training events and share audio, documents or slides – even when they’re not in the same place as the meeting host or in the same room where the event or presentation is taking place.

The second proposed webinar topic by CPSC is DACUM Process. As Technical Education and Vocational Training (TVET) has globally been recognized as most effective tool for increasing employment and poverty reduction. The success of TVET education largely depends upon the quality of education and one of the pillar of quality education is curricula. Thus, it is vital for TVET educators to understand the importance, relevancy, and development process of curricula. One of the most important stage in development of curricula is the DACUM. It’s a highly effective, quick, and low cost method to conduct a job, occupational, process, and functional analysis. In TVET high quality education and training programs are needed to produce skilled workers. A job analysis is the best way to gather this information.

DACUM has been successfully used to identify skills and related knowledge that a worker needs to perform a job. DACUM has been used extensively in the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) sector all over the world to develop technical curriculum. DACUM is used in the occupational analysis phase, after DACUM other stages like validation workshop, competency formation, task analysis, and development of training curriculum follows.

In TVET sector, we have been discussing on how to integrate greening TVET, 21st century skills, and technopreneurship components in curricula. DACUM process will help in understand the integration process. In addition to curriculum development, outcome of DACUM can be used for development competency standards, development of job description, determine training needs, designing performance evaluation, for new supervisors/managers’ to understand what their employees do on the job.

Thus, CPSC is looking forward to this webinar on “DACUM Process” and meet all the CPSC member countries participants & discuss about it. It is hoped that this experience will enable us to think and act differently on development of curricula and integration of different components in a curriculum.
