The city’s delegation had four teachers who won first prize, two teachers who won second prize, four teachers won third and two teachers won consolation prizes.

In related news, at a seminar on education, vocational training and skills in HCM City on August 12, educational experts forecast that between 2009 and 2010 the city will need more than 270,000 workers each year.

The demand for skills is centered on IT, telecoms, electrical engineering, electronics, the refrigeration industry, food chemistry, tourism and finance.

Currently, the city has many vocational training schools teaching various careers.

Students will still have chances to continue studies despite failing to get into college and university. However, people should choose careers suitable to labor market demand and their abilities, delegates agreed.
