“The Vietnamese Green Growth Strategy (VGGS) emphasises that Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) plays a significant role in sustainable and green development by training a skilled labour force for a green economy”, Dr Pham Nang Khanh, Deputy Director, Directorate of Vocational Education Training (DVET) pointed out at one of the training workshops “Multiplier Training Workshop on Implementation of Greening TVET Institutes”. Two workshops took place from 5 to 6 July in Hanoi and on 11 July 2018 in Ho Chi Minh City. Nearly 100 representatives from DVET, Ho Chi Minh City Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (DoLISA), the business sector, and TVET institutes from across the country participated. Through intensive training, group work and discussion sessions, many recommendations and lessons learnt were derived. As a result, the participants developed realistic measures to transform their respective TVET institutes into greener learning and training environments.

TVET in Wastewater Sector / Issue 7 / January – June 2017
Since 2013 up to now, the Field of Activity 3 (FoA 3) “TVET for Skilled Workforce in the Wastewater Sector” as part of the Programme Reform of TVET in Viet Nam, funded by Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), has focused on developing and implementing the pilot training programme for Sewage Engineering Technicians in order to produce a higher-skilled workforce for the wastewater sector.
On behalf of BMZ, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) has provided support and consultation to Vietnamese partners, including the TVET institutes, the partner enterprises, the sector association and relevant ministries, in order to develop and implement the cooperative training model.
The College of Technology II (HVCT) is offering the cooperative training programme for “Sewage Engineering Technicians”. This programme has been developed and is being implemented in close cooperation with sewerage companies, including:
- Ho Chi Minh Urban Drainage One Member Limited Company (UDC)
- Ba Ria Vung Tau Urban Sewerage and Development One Member Limited Company (BUSADCO)
- Binh Duong Water Supply, Sewerage, Environment One Member Limited Company (BIWASE)
- Can Tho Water Supply, Sewerage One Member Limited Company (CanthoWassco)
- Khanh Hoa Water Supply, Sewerage Joint Stock Company (KhanhhoaWassco)
The project has not only strengthened the partnership between the TVET institutes, the Vietnam Water Supply and Sewerage Association (VWSA) and the sewerage companies, it has also built capacity for teachers and in-company trainers on effective training methods and the technical aspects of sewage engineering.
