(VEN) - According to the Ben Tre Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs, the province has provided advice and introduced jobs for more than 159,000 people and created jobs for more than 122,000 workers since 2010. Of which, the number of workers experiencing vocational training courses has reached over 34,000, contributing to increasing the rate of trained workers to 50 percent.
Annual recruitment demand in Ben Tre Province is high thanks to the presence of many industrial zones. Therefore, local governments and entrepreneurs have closely linked in order to provide information about employment and training needs for local labors.
Many vocational training models for rural workers have proved its efficiency such as vocational training in trade villages and handicraft cooperatives, contributing to creating jobs for more than 85 percent of rural workers. These models are considered to be consistent with economic development situation of each locality and are being replicated such as broom binding in Thanh Phu District’s My An Commune, industrial sewing in Thanh Phu District’s Thanh Phong, An Quy, My An and Quoi Dien communes, flower implantation in Cho Lach District’s Vinh Thanh and Tan Thieng communes, fruit growing in Cho Lach District’s Son Dinh Commune and basket weaving in Mo Cay Nam District’s An Dat and Dinh Trung cooperatives.
These models have created jobs for thousands of local workers. In particular, a sewing training and transfer model between the Chau Thanh District Vocational Training Center and the Cay Dua One-member Co., Ltd. and between the Ba Tri District Vocational Training Center and the Ty Hung Company has offered jobs for 1,644 rural workers.
The Ben Tre Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs has actively cooperated with vocational training institutions to develop training programs and adjust 34 agricultural and non-agricultural training programs for rural workers. The adjustment of vocational training programs and training time has helped institutions facilitate training issues in accordance with production conditions in each locality.
To improve vocational training efficiency, meet recruitment demands and increase the rate of trained workers to 60 percent by 2020, Ben Tre Province’s vocational training institutions should continue strengthening propaganda to let workers know about training programs, improve quality and training capacity of vocational institutions and effectively use machinery and equipment to bring about the highest benefits.
Ben Tre Province has organized vocational training courses for 5,000 rural workers in 2015, including 1,500 people in agricultural training programs and the remainder in non-agricultural training programs, contributing to raising the rate of trained workers to 50 percent.
