HÀ NỘI — Deputy Prime Minister Vũ Đức Đam has approved a five-year digital transformation programme in the vocational training sector.
The targets of the programme include rolling out vocational training activities in the digital space; strengthening the application of information technology in vocational training, including teaching and learning, evaluating and managing activities; expanding vocational training access to a greater number of people, while enhancing the quality of training activities, thus improving human resources quality and labour productivity in the country in the context of increasing international integration.
In 2030, the Government aims to have 100 per cent of vocational instructors/trainers and management officials receiving supplementary training to improve their capacity to conduct vocational training activities, including appropriate pedagogic methods, in the digital environment.
Meanwhile, 100 per cent of lecturers and trainers are hoped to be able to create digital learning material.
By 2030, the Government aims for 100 per cent of the vocational courses/programmes having integrated digital capacity lessons, along with 100 per cent of all information technology-related disciplines having studying materials updated with contents about the latest technologies available in the world.
The scheme also aims to develop a national digital platform for vocational training, along with shared digital resources for training and learning activities in 2025.
In 2030, 100 per cent of training facilities are expected to digitalise their training process, results and degrees.
Another goal of the scheme is to form a digital map of the network of vocational education institutions by 2025 and to link the digital map of the network of vocational education institutions with vocational authentication and information lookup by 2030.
Among solutions outlined in the scheme is to complete institutions and policies serving digital transformation in vocational training, develop training curricula to meet digital transformation requirements and expand digital infrastructure, training equipment and documents.
It also underlines the need to improve the capacity for trainers and management officials, along with the mobilisation of resources for vocational training and international cooperation in the field. — VNS
