TVET Expert for the EU-ASEAN SCOPE Higher Education Programme in Thailand

Background: Programme Objectives and Scope

In today’s interconnected world, promoting exchanges and fostering people-to-people
connectivity is increasingly vital for sustainable development and global collaboration. The

European Union (EU) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) have a long-
standing history of working together in trade facilitation, regional economic integration, transport, and people-to-people connectivity in education and research. Over the last four decades, both have emerged as dynamic regional blocs, fostering economic growth, cultural diversity, and cooperation among their member states. Both strive to balance economic and financial stability with environmental responsibility while ensuring society benefits from connectivity.

Access to higher education has expanded in the ASEAN region, enrolment rates have risen,
and the quality of education has improved over the last four decades. However, challenges
remain in realising the full potential of higher education, Technical and Vocational Education
and Training (TVET), and research, such as quality assurance, equitable access to education
and training, skills gaps, and strengthening research capacity.

Nuffic Southeast Asia and DAAD have designed a new EU-funded programme to respond to these challenges in the Southeast Asia region. EU-ASEAN Sustainable Connectivity Package-
Higher Education (SCOPE-HE) Programme will aim to strengthen the connection between ASEAN and the EU by focusing on gender equality, women’s empowerment, digital skills, and
green skills within the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity 2025 (MPAC). Through this initiative, individuals, institutions, and societies in both regions will benefit from enhanced knowledge-
sharing, inclusive practices, and a more robust global partnership.
