Two memorandums of understanding on vocational education and training (VET) cooperation were signed on August 14 between Vietnam’s Directorate of Vocational Education and Training (DVET) and Vietnam Logistics Association (VLA), and between Vietnamese logistics enterprises and VET providers, with the assistance of the Australian government via the Aus4Skills.

Australia is well-known for the industry-led vocational education and training – a model that helps workers receive relevant and high-quality training and meet industries’ increasing demand for a skilled workforce. Since 2017, the Australian government, through Aus4Skills, has been sharing its experience to help Vietnam draw on lessons learned from Australia’s VET system and adapt it to Vietnam’s context with stronger engagement of the business community, through a pilot project in the logistics sector.

The MoU signing event shows Vietnam’s commitment to improving the relevance and quality of VET through promoting industry linkages. As such, a foundation has been laid for stronger collaboration between VET providers and the business community.

“Promoting industry linkages with VET is one of the effective solutions to renew and enhance VET quality in Vietnam. The industry-led VET pilot project in the logistics sector serves as a demonstration model that can potentially be applied in other sectors in the country,” Truong Anh Dung, deputy general director of DVET, said at the ceremony- The Saigon Times.
