Technical and Vocational Education and Training in the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam: An Assessment [26 September 2014]


[full-text, 136 pages]


This publication is an assessment of major trends, strengths, and issues in the technical and vocational education and training subsector, focusing on formal skills development programs operated by the General Department of Vocational Training of the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs of the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam. It analyzes the country’s technical and vocational training system as well as subsector policies and strategies.

Data on related issues (such as growth in employment, education indicators, and enrollment rates) were collected, consolidated, and displayed in tabular form to give readers an overall picture and comprehensive view of the development of the subsector.


The report includes some recommendations on actions to strengthen Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) over the coming decade. The two main recommendations are to strengthen the knowledge base on TVET as a means to raise performance, and to consider a payroll levy for training as a way to stimulate more enterprise-based training.

The overall strategy has five core elements:

·       provide the right skills;

·       teach skills more effectively;

·       reform further organization and management of TVET;

·       build equity in training provision; and

·       stimulate greater enterprise-based training.
