Hanoi (VNA) – Training personnel, especially high-quality human resources, requires a comprehensive renovation in the context of the ongoing fourth industrial revolution, said Minister of Industry and Trade (MoIT) Tran Tuan Anh.

Therefore, outdated training methods should no longer be used as they lack interaction and touch with reality, and could lead to backwardness, the minister said at a symposium hosted by Hanoi University of Industry on February 26.

He stressed the need for the industry and trade sector to soon roll out concrete orientations and solutions in the face of rapid changes caused by the fourth industrial revolution.

The minister also pointed out limitations regarding lecturers, infrastructure and training methods at schools under the management of the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT).

Besides, high-quality human resources must meet requirements and standards of both domestic and foreign markets, Anh said, stressing that in order to reach the target of becoming a supplier of high-quality human resources for the international labour market, Vietnam should promptly set forth specific actions and solutions.

Major General Nguyen Manh Hung, General Director of the Military Industry and Telecoms Group (Viettel), revealed the “reverse methods” employed by Viettel, adding that students should practise before learning theories.

Teachers should only be the coach and teaching should covers all sectors, instead of focusing on a major, said Hung.-VNA
