Print

The Ministry of Labour, War Invalids Social Affairs (MoLISA) and Japan’s International Manpower Development Organisation (IM) on August 7 signed an agreement on training Vietnamese needy youths.

Under the agreement, free training programmes will be organised in Vietnam for young people from poor families or households entitled to social welfare policies.

To be eligible for the programmes, the young people should be from 18-25 years old and have graduated from junior high school, excluding those graduating from senior high school or higher.

All the participants will also be provided with free accommodation and meals during the studying period. Those pass the final exam will be granted certification, and can participate in the Technical Intern Training Programme (TITP) for Vietnamese apprentices in Japan.

The IM has raised 15 million JPY (154,000 USD) for the free training programme this year.

Vietnam and Japan has been implementing the Technical Intern Training Programme (TITP) for Vietnamese apprentices in Japan since 2005. However, participants are required to have at least graduated from senior high school, thus disqualifying many poor young people in rural and mountainous areas.-VNA
