Vietnam’s Vocational Training Sector to Push Distance Learning: Deputy Minister Vietnam’s vocational training sector will push the distance learning and teaching, as an adaptation to “new standards” due to COVID-19, said Deputy Minister of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Le Quan.
Mr. Le Quan clarified that distance learning and teaching would become a popular method soon, not a temporary method during the COVID-19 pandemic. He reminded that the MoLISA in 2018 issued Circular 33/2018 on distance learning. He listed key points of recognition of learners’ outcomes among various schools and vocational training units, and deep participation of businesses in training. Mr. Quan added that the MoLISA granted autonomy to vocational training schools in adjusting their curricula and applying modern technology, in line with the development. Besides, Deputy Minister Quan noted that the biggest problems of distance learning within vocational training is now the outdated mindset of both learners and teachers towards the changes. He also informed that the MoLISA has set guidelines to help vocational training units improve their recruitment by online methods.
