Overview of Institution and Motivation for Joining MS2W :

Maptaphut Technical College (MTC) is located in Rayong, the eastern province of Thailand. The college produces graduates mostly to serve industries in the Maptaphut Industrial Estate and nearby industrial compounds. Since 2008, MTC has launched the Vocational Chemical Engineering Practice College (V-ChEPC) program, run by the Office of the Vocational Education Commission (OVEC), Ministry of Education with support of six petroleum/petrochemical companies and the Petroleum Institute of Thailand. V-ChEPC provides a two-year program in petro-technical engineering, adopting the constructionist learning model to ensure students’ all-round development. Recently, OVEC selected MTC as one of six colleges (out of 421 TVET Colleges under OVEC) to be developed into Specialized College for Petrochemical Technology. This was due to the successful experiences in working with industries and placement of students on the job.

MTC is interested in joining MS2W because it wants to move forward faster and better in order to produce qualified technicians for industry. MTC expects to have staff development through self-learning programs, community of practice, show and share sessions among instructors on new knowledge and experiences of workforce development, pedagogy and technology.
