HCM City (VNA) – A seminar is being held in Ho Chi Minh City from October 23-26 to discuss the effective management of vocational training establishments.

The seminar was jointly hosted by the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training under the Ministry of Labour, War Invalids and Social Affairs, and the GIZ Vocational Training in Vietnam.

Speaking at the event, director of the management board of vocational training projects Khuong Thi Nhan said autonomy creates a driving force for vocational training establishments to connect with associations, partners and businesses, thereby sharing labour market information and curricula, as well as building cost-effective models to ensure the best efficiency.

Pham Van Tuong, Vice Rector of the Quy Nhon Technical College, said autonomy in vocational training establishments will create consensus on financial affairs from the central to local levels, towards improving training quality amid the fourth industrial revolution.

Deputy Director of the GIZ in Vietnam Britta Erckelens described autonomy as a breakthrough in governance reform and a crucial factor for the development of vocational training establishments.

During the event, German experts and leaders from colleges and vocational training establishments are discussing Vietnam’s legal framework, good governance, the possibility of diversifying income and building models to access businesses.-VNA
