In 2010, Vietnam’s working age population was nearly 50 million. Vietnam has set a target to become an industrialized country by 2020. In this context, vocational training is a key factor to achieve this goal. Currently, training activities at technical training centers can only meet the needs of enterprises in Vietnam in a limited way. This training is suitable for a heavy industry that tends to narrow down to make room for the electronics or telecommunications sectors, and thus has become somewhat outdated and at the same time unable to meet expectations of foreign corporations investing in Vietnam. As a result, three quarters of enterprises must train themselves for newly recruited personnel.
Vietnam has a network of around 1,200 vocational training schools and centers, most of which are public schools, in addition to training institutions belonging to businesses. About 1.9 million students were trained by this system in 2011. Being aware of the challenge of development, the Government of Vietnam has a large investment in this area.
Since 1998, the Government of Vietnam has decided to modernize its training centers, with the goal of 45% of the working age population trained in 2015 (then Vietnam will have 60.8 million people in working age, over 94 million people) and 55% by 2020. To achieve this goal, the Government has called for the support of many banks.
With the motto “Prestige, quality, trust and professional”, Institute of Human Resources Training and Development ISTDH has established for itself a system of professional training links. Come with us to fulfill your ambition!
