“Should I pursue university career path or choose technical vocational education and training instead?” “What occupation and school should I choose to match my interest, ability, and to ensure job opportunities after graduation?” These were some of the common questions raised by participating high school students and their parents during the discussions on the Open Day which took place on April 22, 2018, at the LILAMA 2 International Technology College (LILAMA 2) in Long Thanh, Dong Nai province. The Open Day attracted more than 1,200 participants including students, their parents and the management boards from high schools in Dong Nai, Binh Duong, Lam Dong provinces, LILAMA 2 alumni and current trainees as well as human resource managers from enterprises.
Professional Grinding for Vocational Trainers of Metal Cutting-CNC
Dong Nai, 07/07/2017
LILAMA 2 International Technology College is among the TVET-institutes with the most professional, state-of-the-art equipment. This requires a constant qualification for the practical trainers. From 26 June to 07 July 2017, the training course on Surface and Cylindrical Grinding was successfully organized at LILAMA 2. Nine teachers/ instructors from TVET partner institutes of Vocational College of Machinery and Irrigation (VCMI) and LILAMA 2 attended the course.
Under the guidance of the qualified and experienced trainer Mr. Duong Van Linh, the participants learnt a wide spectrum of grinding including important topics such as (i) to select and apply measuring- and testing instruments for grinding, (ii) to set up, operate and maintain Grinding machines, and (iii) to describe, demonstrate and observe safety regulations.
During the training course the participants were instructed to produce semi-complex workpieces with high accuracy by surface and cylindrical grinding procedures on conventional machine tools according to German industry standard. Next to practical work, the course included also operational planning as well as the consequent evaluation of the work products and of the manufacturing process for quality assurance (regarding functionality, appearance and dimensional accuracy), in particular considering the dependence to down- and upstream production units.
After completion of this training course the teachers/instructors are expected to conduct practice-oriented grinding training for their trainees and to utilize the conventional grinding machine tools effectively. The teachers/instructors are also asked to undertake further multiplication measures for their fellow trainers at their institutes.
The training course was held within the activity field “Support of Centres of Excellence for TVET” as part of the Vietnamese-German Programme Reform of TVET in Viet Nam. The programme is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
