Vocational training providing livelihoods for ethnic groups

Vocational training linked with employment opportunities in Dak Lak province has yielded tangible results in recent times. Through skills training, residents have received job opportunities, higher incomes, and stabilised lives, contributing to sustainable poverty reduction.

The brocade weaving vocational class organised by Krông Pắc district in Tân Tiến commune is quite lively, with exchanges between students and teachers. Despite being in place for just a month, the class has 35 enthusiastic ethnic students, with a dedicated teacher guiding every step, from threading to weaving patterns, with enthusiasm and hands-on instruction.

After attending a construction training class introduced by Krông Ana district, Y Nghiem Bya found stable employment. With support from local authorities, he and 19 other young people established a construction cooperative after receiving 60 million VND from local authorities for machinery.

Nearly 60% of Dak Lak province’s 1.9 million residents are of working age. Vocational education institutions have trained over 92,000 individuals since 2021, with more than 7,000 receiving training in rural areas, including over 6,000 ethnic people. Around 80% of workers find new or improved employment after this training, contributing to local socioeconomic development.

Dak Lak, with a large ethnic population, has provided vocational training for rural workers and offered stable employment for economic development. Moving forward, the province aims to align vocational training with job creation policies for local residents./.
