The province has paid attention to vocational training for the disabled
Thanks to vocational training, Lai Chau Province has created jobs for many local people. The rate of trained laborers increased from 22.5 percent in 2011 to 39.8 percent in 2014.
The province organized vocational training for 26,563 people from 2011 to September 2015. Almost all of them have had new jobs or continued to do old jobs with higher incomes. Labor awareness against the role of vocational training has significantly changed as they have known about the application of knowledge into production, contributing to gradually eliminating old farming habits. In particular, some trained laborers have promoted investment in establishing and expanding small trade, production facilities and models, creating stable jobs, raising incomes and enhancing poverty alleviation.
Vocational training steering committees and centers have been established in districts and communes. In addition, the province has paid attention to organizing seven training courses to improve capabilities of 450 staff members, promoting propaganda and giving advice to rural laborers via many forms such as television, radio and newspapers and implementing vocational training courses such as high productivity rice growing, corn and tea planting, rubber tapping, power generation and farming.
Vocational training courses in terms of food crops growing have proved its efficiency in A Mai Village in Muong Te District’s Pa Ve Su Commune. Thanks to training courses, laborers have known about new cultivation methods. Therefore, rice productivity has increased from 20-25 quintal per hectare to 45-50 quintal per hectare.
To enhance the quality of vocational training courses, districts and communes have focused on improving skills for lecturers by cooperating with some prestigious training centers. In addition, they have also paid special attention to overseeing vocational training facilities, contributing to soon detecting violations. The province has guided districts and communes to review labor force and demand to select training courses in accordance with the actual situation.
The province has directed vocational training centers in districts and communes to renew training contents and forms and paid attention to vocational training for the disabled. In particular, vocational training must associate with labor demand and apprentices will have jobs after training courses. The province has also asked training facilities to expand effective training models and strictly implement the principle not to organize vocational training for rural laborers unless they will have jobs and incomes after training courses.
