As many as 1,400 vocational trainers and 300 vocational school managers will be trained abroad by 2015 within the framework of the US-partnered Higher Engineering Education Alliance Programme (HEEAP).

Under the related project approved by the Prime Minister on March 4, Vietnam will complete the reception and transfer of 34 sets of international- and ASEAN-level curricula certified by transferring countries or prestigious international educational and training institutions for use at local vocational training schools.

By 2015, a pilot vocational training using internationally-certified curricula will start on around 2,750 students.

Transferred programmes and pilot training courses will be monitored closely to ensure the training quality.-VNA
