Speaking at the event, Chargé d’Affaires at the embassy Steph Lysaght said that Vietnam is a potential destination for cooperation opportunities from the UK. The two countries have cooperated in the field of occupational skills education and training.

This seminar offered a chance for the UK’s leading occupational skills education and training providers to expand cooperation with Government organisations, businesses, universities and colleges in Hanoi, he stated.

Pham Vu Quoc Binh, Director of the Vietnam Vocational Training Accreditation Agency, said that the rapid development of the fourth Industrial Revolution is posing numerous challenges for Vietnam’s economy.

To obtain high-quality human resources, Vietnam must build an open and modern occupational education system.

Businesses should play a leading role in occupational education and participate in numerous stages such as defining training demand, increasing the quality of student-centered training, and building a quality training system.

At the seminar, UK enterprises shared their knowledge and introduced technologies and equipment in occupational education and training with its Vietnamese partners in the fields of automobile, garment and textile, construction and restaurant.
