Permeability, in the context of education and training systems, refers to flexible learning pathways, that is, the horizontal and vertical links between education and training programmes and institutions that enable students to move through different learning environments at different speeds regardless of programme orientation. This study aims at discussing the driving forces behind endeavours to make the education and training systems more permeable and pointing out the key policies and instruments in force worldwide. This study concludes with some lessons Cambodia can learn from other countries by adapting the innovations from other countries to diversify pathways for students, in particular the promotion of collaboration between universities and TVET institutions, to ensure that students can move smoothly across learning tracks.
