Seminar talks potential, opportunities in vocational training

A seminar on international cooperation in vocational education was held in Hanoi on November 15 to seek ways to improve training quality.

The event was organised by the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training (DVET) in collaboration with the International Organisation of La Francophonie (OIF) and the International Cooperation Agency of Germany (GIZ).

Participants at the event were updated about orientations, potential and opportunities of bilateral and multilateral cooperation among vocational training centres, especially between the DVET and international agencies and organisations.

They highlighted a need to step up digital transformation and renew methods of vocational training, contributing to maintaining the stability of labour market, improving labour productivity and national competitiveness amid the fourth industrial revolution.

Statistics from the DVET showed that via international cooperation projects, nearly 5,000 lecturers and education managers have been trained, about 200 others joined training courses in Malaysia, Australia, Germany, France, Japan, the Republic of Korea and Taiwan (China). As many as 655 teachers attended short-term courses transferred by Australia and Germany in Vietnam.

However, the figures remain modest compared to nearly 90,000 lecturers in vocational training establishments nationwide.
