Over 90 percent of about 4,800 rural people completing vocational training courses in central Da Nang city has been employed over the past five years, according to the municipal Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs.

Kieu Thi Thanh Trang, head of the department’s vocational training division, attributed the result to diversified training programmes that help rural residents to find jobs in line with their capacity.

Over the past five years of implementation from 2010, the project providing vocational training for rural people has helped numerous labourers to have stable jobs, contributing to the city’s development, she added.

As Da Nang witnesses a strong development in the services sector that leads to a growing demand in the recruitment, most of those who register vocational training courses have focused on services-related skills such as cooking, reception, industrial electricity, garment and bonsai planting.

In addition to courses at vocational training schools, the city has paid attention to developing on-job training model such as mushroom and ornamental tree planting in Hoa Vang district, training captains and mechanics for fishermen and a garment cooperative in Ngu Hanh Son district.

Da Nang plans to help train for 700 rural labourers in 2015 and another 3,000 during the 2016-2020 in a bid to increase the rate of rual labourers equipped with vocational training to 65-7- percent.

A number of measures will be taken to meet the goals such as consultations on vocational training and jobs and development of training models.-VNA
