Vietnamese-German Programme Vocational Training 2008
Planning Workshop 2012
Hanoi, 23-24, February 2012
Within the frame of Vietnamese-German Programme Reform TVET in Viet Nam, the planning workshop of the component “Programme Vocational Training 2008” was organized during 23-24 February 2012 in cooperation of GDVT and GIZ, and especially with TVET partner institutes. The workshop was to jointly plan and agree on activities in 2012 and implementation principles.
The workshop received wide attention of a range of stakeholders involved in the programme including MoLISA, GDVT, PMU, GIZ, KfW, TVET institutes, and local authorities such as provincial people’s committee and DoLISA. This made the workshop a forum of open and active discussions on programme approach, contributions of all partners, lessons learnt from project implementation progress so far, in particular, necessary and feasible activities for the year 2012. In this regards, Dr. Dung, DG GDVT and National Programme Director as well as Dr. Horst Sommer, GIZ Programme Director highlighted the importance of timely implementation of Technical and Financial Cooperation towards achieving programme objectives.
The breakthrough in TVET quality can only be achieved by interlinked contributions of all involved partners. In a first step teacher’s competences needs to be developed and management structures further improved. In parallel the equipment has to be procured based on the institutional development plans, where the future training programs and needed infrastructure are outlined already. In response to these issues, three topics were discussed in working groups: frame conditions for effective implementation, effective mechanism for multiplication, and strengthen networking between partners. It was seen by all participants of the workshop that in responsibility of partner institutes multiplication of gained competences and experiences within the network of partner TVET institutes is crucial for sustainable success and development. National and local authorities and especially school management have to set up the frame conditions for change processes and institutional development. The driving engine to develop demand-oriented TVET offers at TVET institutes will be the actions taken by all partners.
