Meeting Work Placement Programme

The Thai Ministry of Education hosts this meeting of the Work Placement Programme on the beautiful Island of Phuket. The meeting is organised back-to-back with the Expert Group on Credit Transfer Systems as most partners are part of both initiatives.

This meeting monitors the further development of the Programme which includes a better communication strategy (website, promotion leaflet, standardized documents) as well as a more structural workflow and more structural cooperation between partners.  The aim of the programme is to get better structuralised in order to find more funding for work placements as well as to attract more companies and other partner countries to extend the programme and thus the work placement opportunities.

More information can be found on the new ASEM WPP Website (still under construction).
