Business-vocational school link key to workers’ training, says HCMC trainer

Close coordination between businesses and vocational training centers is a key factor in boosting the quality of training and ensuring trainees get jobs after graduation, a lecturer at several schools in Ho Chi Minh City, told SGGP.

After reading a series of articles themed “The Party and the people: From theory to practice” the newspaper published, Tran Tien Duc has written to share his opinions on the issue.

He writes:
 
Most HCMC-based workers have modest educational and professional qualifications and fail to meet employers’ needs in a city that is rapidly becoming a market economy.

So Action Plan No. 38 launched recently by the city Party Committee to improve the quality of human-resource training, including workers’ training, is indispensable.

The plan dovetails with the Party's Central Executive Committee’s policy on boosting workers’ qualifications to meet the country’s modernization and industrialization needs.

To build a strong workforce by 2020 as it targets, besides opening training courses and encouraging workers to improve their skills, the city should also adopt policies to strengthen coordination between businesses and vocational schools to improve training quality and ensure jobs for trainees.

Upon completion of their training, trainees need to get well-regarded diplomas that enable them to find jobs easily.

Trainers’ qualifications should be improved if the city wants to enhance training quality.

“Teachers must have professional knowledge, a lot of practical experience, and innovative teaching methods.”

Such people can be chosen from among winners of the Ton Duc Thang Award organized annually  by SGGP and the city Labor Federation to honor outstanding teachers.
