Bac Giang intensifies vocational training

(VEN) - Bac Giang Province’s vocational training has gradually met labor market demands, contributing to the restructuring of the local economy away from agro, forestry and fisheries and towards industry and services.

Bac Giang intensifies vocational training

Garment-making training

Bac Giang currently has 94 vocational training institutions, 18 more than in 2011, including 3 colleges, 6 schools, 25 centers and 60 facilities. These vocational training institutions have focused on improving vocational training quality, skills, occupational health and safety (OHS) education, along with offering learners more options, including courses on business start-ups and marketing.

As many as 13,348 trained workers have been employed locally, accounting for 34.18 percent of the total trained and 240 more compared to 2014, while 1,841 trained workers have gone to work abroad, accounting for 48.45 percent of the annual plan. To date, more than 70 percent of trained rural workers have had a stable job, with monthly salaries ranging from VND2-5 million. Some metalworkers may earn from VND7-10 million per month.

There are various vocational training types including training at enterprises or via programs.

The Bac Giang Farmers’ Union has pioneered vocational training working in coordination with related agencies to implement a variety of vocational training programs in recent years. This year, it has offered three short-term training courses for 90 rural workers. To date, the union has coordinated training for more than 3,000 workers, provided vocational consultancy for nearly 4,300 workers and seen 223 workers go abroad for employment, contributing to reducing the local poverty rate.

According to the Bac Giang Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs, in order to make the most use of local human resources in the provincial socioeconomic development, vocational training institutions in the province should adopt new vocational training models, continue expanding the scope and type of vocational training, raise the local awareness about the sort of training options available and encourage the business community and social organizations to participate in vocational training.

The province will in the coming time continue to improve the quality of vocational training, call for private investment, promote cooperation with domestic and foreign partners, and improve vocational training and labor market information database, in order to better serve provincial socioeconomic development.
