On 28 June 2019 the two remaining examination committees for the occupations Mechatronics Technicians and Industrial Electronics Technicians were established with member of LILAMA 2 and the partner companies Thuan Hai, Sang Tao and Martech Boiler. The committees are responsible for the development of the content of the final examinations, the organization of the examinations as well as the supervision of the examinees and the assessment of their work results.
Mr Le Quang Trung, Vice Rector of LILAMA 2, explained: “LILAMA 2 is implementing the cooperative training approach. The partner companies already participated actively in developing the occupational standards and training programmes for Metal Cutting-CNC, Construction Mechanics, Mechatronics and Industrial Electronics as well as in conducting in-company training phases. In the final step, the partner companies directly participate in the process of developing and implementing the final examinations for the four pilot classes.”
This process follows the key elements of the German examination system while being adjusted to the conditions in Vietnam. “Firstly, the examination reflects the occupational knowledge and skills which are necessary to perform the duties and tasks defined by the business sector in the developed occupational standards. Secondly, representatives of the partner companies will be part of the examination committee to verify that the graduates meet their requirements.”, Ms. Lisa-Marie Kreibich, Head of Component 2 “Support of Centres of Excellence”, highlighted.
During the meeting, the participants of the companies and LILAMA 2 confirmed their motivation to become an active member of the examination committee and agreed mutually on the draft implementation regulations. Subsequently, they will continue to further develop the final examinations. Also, an examiner training of 80h is going to take place for the members of the committee. In this intensive further training course, the potential examiners will be trained by an experienced international expert in the development and appropriate examination implementation and assessment of examinees. The examiners will then organise and conduct the final examination under the coaching of the international expert to confirm the orderly implementation and justified assessment of the results of the pilot classes.
This activity is held within the component “Support for Centres of Excellence for TVET” as part of the Vietnamese-German “Programme Reform of TVET in Viet Nam”. The programme is financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) together with the Vietnamese Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA).
