The central province of Phu Yen has set a target to provide vocational training for 29,000 people, 80 percent of which will find jobs post-training from now to 2020.

To achieve that goal, the provincial People’s Committee has asked authorities at district and commune levels to investigate the local demand for vocational training, particularly in mountainous and ethnic minority areas, to help them choose suitable job training topics.

It has also requested 18 vocational education facilities coordinate with businesses in the training.

Additionally, the People’s Committee has decided to increase the number of jobs on the curriculum of training facilities from 68 to 127.

From 2010-2014, 22,274 locals received vocation training, 16,840 of which have since held sustainable jobs, representing 75.6 percent.-VNA
