Since 2013 up to now, the project “TVET for Skilled Workers 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.

The project has not only strengthened the partnership between the TVET institute, 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.
