Universities, enterprises connect to boost training quality

Over 100 experts gathered for a two-day dialogue starting on June 16 in Ho Chi Minh City to seek ways to better connect universities and enterprises to enhance training quality. 

They are from governmental bodies, enterprises, universities, and research institutes from the UK, ASEAN nations and Vietnam. 

The delegates highlighted the need to equip university graduates with necessary skills to participate in the competitive globalised job market.

To that end, educational institutions need to adjust their curricula and connect with enterprises to provide more relevant training programmes. 

The experts also discussed ways to develop a capable and skilful labour force by strengthening the cooperation between universities and enterprises. 

Deputy Minister of Education and Training Bui Van Ga highlighted the global on-the-job training trend, saying that domestic enterprises need to become further involved in the education and training sector to better meet the market demands in labour force. 

Currently, over 20 UK universities are working with Vietnamese educational partners, according to UK Ambassador to Vietnam Giles Lever. 

The UK has pledged to provide financial and technical support for Vietnam’s educational sector, for the sake of the society and sustainable economic development, he said.
