The Prime Minister has approved the second phase of the Netherlands-funded project, which aims to strengthen profession oriented higher education (POHE) in Vietnam.

The project is part of the programme “Netherlands Initiative for Capacity Development in Higher Education” in Vietnam .

The Ministry of Education and Training was assigned to coordinate with the Dutch side to develop the outline for the project.

The ministry will be also responsible for conducting the assessment, approval and implementation of the project under the current regulations on managing and using the Official Development Assistance (ODA) capital.

Since 2005, POHE has helped to enhance professional capacity for Vietnamese students through setting up training programmes, which focused on the needs of the labour market.

The project has also set a target of implementing training policies in accordance with social demand and building a policy on profession oriented training model.-VNA
