HA NOI (VNS) — KLF Joint Venture Investment International JSC (KLF) on November 6 signed a strategic partnership agreement for quality vocational training with the European Association for Vocational and Social Education (EBG).
The agreement marks the first step that KLF has taken to expand its presence in the European Union.
Under the agreement, KLF will become EBG's private partner in providing quality vocational training in the nursing, mechanics, welder and construction sectors for Vietnamese citizens who have completed their basic training in Viet Nam.
During the first phase, trainees will take vocational and foreign language courses in Viet Nam. After completing these courses, the trainees will undergo further training in Germany and other European countries. The certification they will receive after completing each course will make them eligible for employment in the EU job market.
Training for the pilot nursing and welder sectors will begin at the start of next year.
At the signing ceremony, Tran Thi My Lan, a KLF management board member, said the company expected to become one of the leaders in providing quality vocational training in Viet Nam.
Lan added that the co-operation agreement with EBG would create opportunities for aspiring Vietnamese workers to get basic vocational and language training.
KLF aims to provide human resources to high-class markets in the EU such as Germany, Slovakia and Austria.
Bernhard Beckmann, EBG managing director, said EBG viewed the partnership as an opportunity to expand vocational training activities to provide quality human resources to developed countries.
KLF has operated in several sectors, including trade, services, health care and education, and has paid much attention to international co-operation in education and training to be able to offer quality resources.
EBG has 36 vocational training centres in Germany and other countries across the globe and has implemented several big projects with the help of the European Association of Institutes for Vocational Training, as well as vocational training centres in the EU, China, Russia and Slovakia. — VNS
