Dissemination of the basic module on “Environmental protection, energy and resource efficiency”
Hanoi, July 17-19 2019
GIZ, KOICA and DVET jointly organized a training workshop to introduce the basic module on “Environmental protection, energy and resource efficiency” to 10 VET colleges from North to Central Vietnam. Participants are teachers and managers from Vietnam-Korea and GIZ-supported colleges. The workshop is the first activity carried out under the MOU signed between GIZ and KOICA last month to jointly support the TVET sector in Vietnam.
The module is a 36-hour training programme developed by teachers from the Vocational College of Machinery and Irrigation (VCMI), with technical support from German consultants. The aim is to provide VET students with cross-occupational green skills that they can use and further develop as responsible workers and citizens.
Participants provided important feedback to finetune the module, as well as suggestions on how to best integrate the module in current VET training programmes.
