Asia-Pacific Regional Guide to Equivalency Programmes

This Regional Guide to Equivalency Programmes (EPs) for Promoting Lifelong Learning has been developed as a practical guide for education policy makers, planners, managers and practitioners at national and subnational levels.

It is part of a project on EPs within the framework of the Asia-Pacific Programme of Education for All (APPEAL) initiated in 2003. UNESCO supported India, Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand – countries which have considerable experiences designing and implementing EPs – to undertake research identifying their experiences. That research was shared with six new participating countries – Bangladesh, Cambodia, People’s Republic of China, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Mongolia – during a regional workshop in Manila, the Philippines, in 2005, and a publication was then produced titled Equivalency Programmes (EPs) for Promoting Lifelong Learning.
