Is business a school? In some developed countries, businesses on the one hand create jobs, but on the other hand, businesses will recognize vocational skills certificates.
That is the issue discussed at the Workshop “Consultation on the Strategy for Vocational Education Development for the period 2021-2030, with a vision to 2045” organized by the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training (DVET) under Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) recently organized online.
Businesses are not “salty”
At the seminar, Mr. Nguyen Chi Sang - Vice President, General Secretary of the Vietnam Association of Mechanical Enterprises (VAMI) discussed the aspect of combining enterprises with career centers" mentioned in the Project. draft "Strategy to develop vocational education in the period of 2021-2030, with a vision to 2045".
“In the past, when I studied Bach Khoa, the combination between school and business was very good. That means students could go to factories to practice and practice. But now the story is different. When the part is in production, in order, they do not allow risks, do not allow errors in the product, and their capacity must run as much as possible, therefore, enterprises cannot train students. teachers for vocational schools and colleges that can only accept students for internships,” said Mr. Sang.
According to the Vice President of VAMI, if businesses want to combine training, they must have a mechanism to link in a special way. But not businesses with such facilities will be able to train.
“The draft has given a basic strategy of combining vocational education institutions with businesses. But how to combine with businesses, we have to investigate more. Because, it is not always necessary to send education to students. Employees will be arranged to practice machines in enterprises. No where!”, Mr. Sang pondered.
Previously, when he was the director of the Institute of Mechanical Engineering, Mr. Sang visited many businesses and vocational education institutions in Japan, Germany, Europe and the US and saw that the world had very good programs: Some businesses immediately accept students who have just graduated from high school. After a year of being a trainee through practice, you will be guaranteed a job at the company.
“If we diversify the form of training now and consider their business as a training place, will the business benefit? In the end, we have to turn out that they get what they get “If not, the school's program will continue to be done, and I have to do my job”, this representative stated.
Talking about the above opinion, Mr. Truong Anh Dung - Director General of DVET said that the combination of vocational education institutions and businesses is one of the three strategic breakthroughs proposed by the Draft.
The representative voice of the Vietnam Association of Mechanical Enterprises shows a fact that many businesses are not ready to accept students from universities for practical internships in the context that they are carrying out production stages. output by line. This is a challenge.

`“We will also have concrete solutions to solve this problem. For example, in the Labor Code, an initiative was introduced that is also supported by the ILO. It is the story of us amending the regulations. on vocational training in enterprises.
In some developed countries in Europe, people have dual vocational training. It is both training in schools and training in enterprises. At this point, we will discuss deeply about this content to make it become the focus in the future," said Mr. Truong Anh Dung.

DVET added that many unemployment insurance businesses and business associations with which the General Department is implementing cooperation have now spent a lot of time discussing policies to support unemployment insurance. business support, so that enterprises can provide training and support to improve the skills of their employees. But this is a problem with current legal regulations. At this point, the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs will study and submit to the top to remove this problem.
“How do businesses have the resources and motivation to participate in supporting vocational education activities? The recruitment model in enterprises to both work and study is also a way that we will have to do. promote in the near future,” said Mr. Dung.
