"Master Trainer Training for In-Company Trainers: an Entrance into Cooperative Training"

Dong Nai, 25 April 2016

The first international Master Trainer Training in Viet Nam for in-company trainers has been successfully implemented from 04 to 22 April 2016 at LILAMA 2 Technical & Technology College. The training was conducted according to the curriculum based on the new developed Standard for In-Company Trainers (In-CT) in ASEAN Countries. This international event was organized by the project “Effective In-Company Training in the Mekong Region” with  support of the “Programme Reform of TVET in Viet Nam”, both implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of BMZ, and LILAMA 2 as hosting TVET institute. Cooperation partners are the General Directorate of Vocational Training (GDVT) and Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI).

16 representatives of the business and public sectors from Cambodia, Myanmar and Viet Nam received proudly their “Master Trainer” certificate from high ranking official of GDVT and VCCI, representing the public and business sectors in Viet Nam, from GIZ and from LILAMA 2.

Prof. Dr Cao Van Sam, Vice- Director General of GDVT, as well as the Deputy Director General of VCCI-HCMC, Mr Tran Ngoc Liem, pointed out that the developed curriculum and Standard for In-Company Trainers takes ASEAN conditions into consideration and fills an important gap for realizing cooperative training between vocational training institutes, enterprises and associations. They declared their intention to promote jointly further training courses for in-company trainers according to the developed curriculum based on the In-CT.

All guest speakers considered high qualified human resources as essential for developing Vietnam to a competitive industrialized country in the region. The stakeholders also agreed to promote mutually cooperative training in a sustainable way by bridging the gap between vocational training institutes and enterprises with qualified in-company trainers.
