International Professional Standards Network

Thailand Professional Qualification Institute (TPQI)

The IPSN was honored to be invited to participate and present a paper on international mapping at the TPQI conference on “Mapping and Benchmarking Standards for Industry Recognition” and “Recognition of Prior Learning Process and Tools” in Bangkok.

The conference laid the groundwork for a common understanding of the competencies required for a specific occupation across countries in order to enable industry recognition and support workforce mobility. There are many different mechanisms in place for mobility including ASEAN Qualifications Reference Framework, Mutual Recognition Agreements, bilateral agreements, and certification of industry benchmarks, but this conference focused on initial benchmarking of occupational standards for industries and experts to map and identify underpinning knowledge, core elements, and skill levels in selected occupations across countries.
