Indonesia has more than half of the population under the age of 30 and the country’s youth is now demanding a more developed education system to better access the labour market.
Education is at the heart of current reforms and the government is now increasing enrolment across secondary and tertiary levels (which are 62% and 16% respectively) besides increasing the investment in the sector to improve the nation’s education and training system.
Indonesia is currently undergoing a transition phase as it develops to become a knowledge based economy. This will be achieved by growing competitiveness, developing skill sets and achieving outstanding employment performance.
Indonesia’s goal in the foreseeable future is to transform the Indonesian TVET (Technical and Vocational Education and Training System) into one that provides demand-driven and practice-oriented programme.
