Teachers of LILAMA 2 are ready to conduct further training for teachers of other TVET institutes
On January 20, 2019, high-ranking officials of the Department of Vocational Education and Training (DVET), the Director General, Dr. Nguyen Hong Minh, and the Director of the Formal Training Department, Dr. Vu Xuan Hung, visited LILAMA 2 International Technology College (LILAMA 2) to gain an overview of the on-going competence assessment of teachers.
During the assessment the teachers proved that they possess the necessary theoretical and practical technical skills to not only provide high-quality initial training but also to conduct further trainings for workers of companies or for teachers of other TVET institutes. “From this year onwards, the trained key teachers should act as multipliers for the TVET system”, states Dr. Nguyen Hong Minh “DVET will assign LILAMA 2 to provide further training for teachers of other TVET institutes.”
Dr. Nguyen Hong Minh and Dr. Vu Xuan Hung observed the second part of the examination of key teachers for Metal Cutting-CNC, which is being conducted by examiners of the German Chamber of Trade (HWK) in Erfurt and is oriented on the regulations and requirements of the German training and examination standards for the respective occupation. They received further information on the examination system in Germany by Mr. Holger Bustro and Mr. Hartmut Stein, examiners of HWK Erfurt.
To improve the acceptance and trust of employers in TVET certificates, certain aspects, such as setting up examination committees with at least one representative of the business sector or ensuring that the examination reflects the occupational standard, are also relevant for Vietnam. These aspects will be the focus of the final examination which will take place for the trainees of the pilot classes at LILAMA 2 mid of 2019. Pilot experiences will then be analysed and submitted to DVET for further improvement of the TVET system in Vietnam.
The activity is organised within the field of activity “Support of Centres of Excellence (CoEs)” 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) GmbH in cooperation with the Vietnamese Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA).
“Cooperation and participation of employers in TVET is a breakthrough solution to reform and improve the workforce quality in the context of international integration and Industry 4.0” said Dr. Truong Anh Dung, General Deputy Director of the Directorate of Vocational Education and Training (DVET) at the Dialogue on “Provisions of the Labour Code regarding industry engagement in vocational training and education (VET)”. The event was jointly organised by DVET, the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), Ho Chi Minh city branch and the Vietnamese-German “Programme Reform of TVET in Viet Nam” in Ho Chi Minh city on 19 April 2019.
The further training course ”Manufacturing of Metal Constructions by MAG Welding Procedures” for metal technology teachers of LILAMA 2, Long An, An Giang and VCMI vocational colleges was conducted from 15.03-12.04.2019 at LILAMA 2 International Technology College in Long Thanh/Dong Nai.
