Project Details


This study examines the issue of skills recognition and is aimed at improving environmental and sustainable development in four industries (Service sector: catering, automotive and waste management; and Manufacturing sector: PVC production) in the formal and informal settings. The objectives of the study are:To map the situation in eight countries and territories (Hong Kong SAR China, China, India, Thailand, Philippines, Kazakhstan, Nepal and Bangladesh) in order to (a) identify environmental friendly practices in respective industries; (b) identify mechanisms in use to recognize/assess existing skill. “Skills” are interpreted broadly and include knowledge, skills, values, attitudes and behaviours. To evaluate a potential for green skills inclusion in recognition of prior learning (RPL) based on comparison against countries with a higher standard of green skills inclusion (e.g. Australia); To identify factors contributing to models development for effective green skills inclusion in RPL and set-up at least one pilot to evaluate a model.
