VietNamNet Bridge – The quality of vocational trainings in Vietnam is the lowest among regional countries and has yet to meet the market’s demand, an official said at a seminar on Wednesday.
Besides, the working skill gap between Vietnamese laborers and foreign ones is still big, said Nguyen Tien Dung, director of the General Department of Vocational Training at a regional meeting held on Wednesday in Hanoi City.
Vietnam’s vocational training network has been expanded much over the past time, raising the rate of laborers receiving training courses to 32%. There is around one million laborers in rural areas having taken training to work for industries, services or modern agriculture.
However, the vocational training is not suitable and does not meet the human resource demand of each industry and locality, and what is needed is a close connection between vocational schools and enterprises, Dung said.
According to experts at the meeting, in order to increase the vocational training quality, trainings on working practice should be moved from schools to enterprises.
Meanwhile, others proposed that instead of State agencies alone assuming the task of vocational training, enterprises should participate in building national criteria for vocational skills.
Speaking at the meeting, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan stressed that the Government always cared for and strived to increase the competitiveness of Vietnam’s laborers. Nhan also agreed that providing training based on the market’s demand is an effective approach which facilitates the study and adaptability of laborers.
