Director General Nguyen Hong Minh spoke at the signing ceremony of the MOU
Speaking at the signing ceremony, Director General Nguyen Hong Minh said that improving the quality of human resources, attaching training with enterprises is an important task and is concerned by the Party and the State for many years. The Resolution of the 12th National Party Congress continued to affirm the promotion of vocational training with enterprises to ensure the supply of human resources, linking labor supply and demand. Among the three key solutions of vocational education: Autonomy in vocational education institutions, linking training with enterprises; strengthening the conditions to ensure the quality of training, the task of attaching training about enterprises is one of the very important solutions to improve the quality of vocational education gradually approaching labour supply and demand. In the past, the connection between enterprises and vocational education is still loose, the linkage is mainly to send students and students to practice at enterprises, training programs are not suitable for real practices export. Inviting enterprises to participate in the program development and assessment of learners only takes place in some institutions that are not popular in the whole system.
To overcome that limitation, at the beginning of 2018, the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs sent an official dispatch to the ministries, branches and localities to direct the vocational training institutions under their management to integrate the school with enterprises in training. DVET has sent official letters to vocational training institutions to guide the implementation of linkage with enterprises in vocational education activities. DVET has coordinated with VCCI to enterprises participating in vocational education activities; clearly analyze the responsibilities and benefits of enterprises when participating in vocational education activities. Through conferences and seminars, DVET has organized the signing of cooperation agreements between DVET with organizations and associations ... The vocational training institutions also organize cooperation agreements with enterprises in vocational education activities. DVET acknowledges and highly appreciates the close coordination between organizations and associations with DVET in the cohesion of schools and businesses. Hopefully this cohesion will really create a breakthrough in the quality of vocational education, associated with job training.

Dr. Juergen Hartwig - Director of the Programme Reform of TVET in Vietnam speaks at the MOU signing ceremony
Regarding the application of German dual training system to Vietnam, Dr. Juergen Hartwig - Director of Programme Reform of TVET in Vietnam said that the role of enterprises is very important in the dual training model in Germany and Austria, Swiss. With the long-term development of this model, GIZ is ready to support and deploy the model in Vietnam. In fact, countries with dual training systems all have the lowest unemployment rates in the world. The success factors of dual training systems in Germany can be deployed, applied in many different countries to create the success of vocational education. He said that in Vietnam, the legal environment for enterprises to participate in vocational training has been greatly improved.The coordination between schools and businesses should be implemented systematically. Enterprises need to be involved in all stages of vocational education, first of all, to build a national vocational skill program and training programs, a period of practicing practical skills to be implemented at enterprises. Enterprises also sent experts to assess the output stage of the training process. The skilled workers of the enterprise only need to foster pedagogical skills for about 100 hours in order to participate in practical teaching at the enterprise. To be able to provide practical training at the enterprise, there should be a legal framework regulating standards, criteria and encouraging the team of experts at enterprises to participate in the training process. This requires the responsibility of vocational education institutions, state management agencies. This combination will benefit all participants, including learners. Within the framework of the cooperation program signed today, in addition to strengthening cooperation with businesses, there are two other contents: green vocational training and greening vocational training; building images and promoting vocational education. Dr. Juergen Hartwig thanked the DVET, VCCI and related parties and hoped to successfully implement this year.

Ms. Britta Erkelenz, Dr. Juergen Hartwig, Dr. Nguyen Hong Minh and Mr. Vo Tan Thanh in the memorandum of understanding
Sharing about training of enterprises, Chairman of Young Entrepreneurs Association Bui Van Quan said that, along with the strong development of the economy, the continuous growth of enterprises, the demand for labor is great. This creates significant challenges for vocational education institutions. The current reality is that graduates do not meet the requirements of businesses and employers. Many businesses cannot recruit workers who meet the requirements or when recruiting must retrain. To overcome this, there have been many implementation solutions in the past, especially the connection between schools and enterprises in all stages related to the training process. Enterprises participate in the program development, enrollment, teaching, evaluation, graduation consideration and recruitment. He hoped that after the signing program today, the connection between schools and businesses will be implemented in a practical, in-depth and replicable manner in all localities.
