– Some 70 percent of graduates from vocational colleges or schools found jobs with starting salaries from 3.6 million to 7 million VND in 2016.

There were more than 1.76 million new holders of vocational training degrees last year, the Directorate of Vocational Training at the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs announced during a workshop to review admission processes and the organisation of final examinations in 2016 and plan for 2017 on April 4.

The directorate aims to have about 2.2 million students enrolled in vocational training courses nationwide.

The target may be ambitious due to students favouring universities.-VNA
