This is a unique resource designed to support vocational education teachers in addressing the distinctive learning characteristics of international students, while also preparing domestic students for global skills mobility in the 'Asian Century'.

Based upon empirical data collected through observation and interviews with teachers and program managers in diverse settings, the book discusses several evidence-based, highly effective, pedagogical approaches, including:

  • The intercultural approach
  • The Ubuntu approach
  • The language and vocational learning integration approach
  • The perspective transformation approach
  • The value-added approach.

These approaches focus on developing the learner's ability to consider the broader issues in an intercultural context, to capitalise on prior experience and to adapt vocational skills to workplace settings transnationally. The underpinning theory is brought to life with real-world exemplars, 'Implications for Practice', quotes and insights from teachers, as well as reflective questions throughout the book.
