Management of adult and vocational education institutions
Since 1 January 1998 all adult and vocational education institutions have been incorporated in regional training centres (ROCs). There are two types of ROC:
- those in which the institutions involved are completely integrated, i.e. have merged to form a single institution with a single competent authority, a single central management board or executive board, a single participation council and one central policy on all issues;
- those in which only the management has merged, i.e. there is a single institution with a single competent authority, a single central management board or executive board and a single participation council, but a joint policy is only necessary in respect of finance, personnel, teaching and examinations, and quality assurance. The central management board or executive board, consisting of up to three members, including the chairperson, is responsible on behalf of the management of the ROC, for the preparation and implementation of policy and the daily affairs of the institution.
