HCM CITY (VNS) — The Lam Dong Province People's Committee has approved a project to provide vocational training for rural labourers at a cost of more than VND115 billion (US$5.5 million) from 2014 to 2020.

About 7,000 - 10,000 rural labourers will be trained each year, with 60 per cent of them expected to take jobs in the agriculture sector. The remaining 40 per cent will work in industrial, non-agricultural sectors or as guest labourers in other countries.

Under the project, at least 80 per cent of the trainees will either continue their current job at a higher income or be hired by another company.

Each worker will be offered a grant of VND2-3 million ($95 - 140) to take a three-month short-term training course.

The province has 10 vocational training centres and over 50 vocational training establishments. About 70 per cent of vocational training courses focus on the agricultural and rural sectors.

Since 2010, Lam Dong Province in the Central Highlands region has provided vocational skill training for about 30,000 labourers, most of whom live in rural areas. — VNS
