On July 5, in Hanoi, DVET had a meeting with the Government of Colombia delegation led by Ms. Constanza Lilanza Alarcón Pá rraga, Deputy Minister of Education. Attending the meeting were Mr. Truong Anh Dung, Deputy Director General of DVET, representatives of departments, units: Department of Continuing, Department of Occupational Skills, Department of Teachers Affairs, Vietnam Vocational Education and Training Accreditation Agency, Office.

Speaking at the meeting, Mr. Truong Anh Dung, Deputy General Director, said that the Government of Vietnam is currently interested in improving skills for workers. Particularly concerned about human resource training. In the structure of trained human resources, vocational education accounts for 80-90%. The network of vocational education institutions currently has 1954 establishments, of which about 900 secondary schools and colleges have more than 1,000 vocational education centers. The national qualification framework consists of 8 levels of education, of which levels 1-5 belong to the vocational education system managed by the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs. In the last two years, the enrollment size each year reached 2.2 million (intermediate, college accounting for about 20%), according to the plan in the next 5 years to double the enrollment size. In addition to increasing the scale, DVET is focusing on improving the quality of training with many solutions including major solutions such as: standardization, linking vocational education with businesses, strengthening inspection control and ensure the quality of vocational education and autonomy in vocational education.

Ms. Constanza Lilanza Alarcón Pá rraga, Deputy Minister of Education of Comlombia, said that the Government of Comlombia has many policies to pay attention to the development of vocational education, however, the quality of training is still limited. The main reason is due to the lack of linkages between vocational education with enterprises and production activities. Besides job skills, Comlombia workers still lack soft skills, limited adaptability, so they are easily fired by employers. Ms. Constanza Lilanza Alarcón Pá rraga appreciated the information that the General Department shared and suggested that the two sides continue to discuss further to enhance cooperation opportunities on vocational education between the two countries such as the delegation exchange, exchanging trainees, lecturers and managers of vocational training institutions.
